National Day of Glass Presenters Explore Emerging Developments

“Glass is an enabler for modern civilization and scientific discovery.” That’s what John Mauro from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at The Pennsylvania State University shared Thursday morning during the National Day of Glass in Washington, D.C. The event is organized by the American Ceramic Society and serves as the U.S. kicks off for the International Year of Glass (IYOG).

Mauro, who could not attend in person, provided a virtual presentation that offered a look at research for the Glass Age. He pointed out that glass has revolutionized architecture and transportation. For example, he expects to see a move toward more interior display glass in automobiles as we move more and more toward driverless vehicles.

The National Day of Glass concludes Thursday, but there are hundreds of other IYOG events scheduled around the world. More information about those activities, as well as the IYOG, is available here.
