On May 26, AP Chemistry and Chemistry II students traveled to Blenko to participate in a glass blowing class.  The class was the penultimate lesson in a series of glass studies which included making stirring rods and glass collection bulbs. 

The students were allowed to make a traditional Blenko water bottle.  After the chemicals for color were added the glass was heated to molten temps and bent and blown into the gorgeous final product.

Lunch at the Hibachi grill in Teays Valley was enjoyed by the students.  Not only was it tasty but the students were able to observe some fantastic combustion reactions!
