Ceramic & Glass Engineering Camp

Description:
The Alfred University Ceramic & Glass Engineering camp is for students who wish to learn about this exciting field. Students participate in fascinating hands-on lab experiences in ceramic processing & tape casting and glass melting & press forming, working alongside faculty. Ceramic Processing and Tape Casting: Ceramic components are at the heart of a vast majority of our everyday items, from cell phones to toilets. At the center of the manufacturing process is ceramic processing - using powders to make usable items. This summer lab exercise will focus on making a ceramic “sun-catcher” that will be fabricated using tape casting, lamination, and glazing, capturing aspects of both historical and advanced ceramic materials and processing techniques.
We will discuss the chemistry involved, the reactions that occur at both room temperature and at high temperature, and how these processes affect the properties (light transmission, strength, etc.) of the ceramic component. Glass Melting and Press Forming: Glass is everywhere in our daily lives, from the screen on your cell phone and LCD television, to windows, bottles, and fiber optic cables. Unlike other ceramics and materials, glass is not a solid, but a super-cooled liquid. How glass is made, however, is an exciting and visually spectacular event, where raw materials (sand, limestone, and soda ash) are blended and melted at high temperature to form a viscous liquid that can be cast and shaped into objects. This lab exercise will discuss how chemistry affects glass properties and color, making glass, and stress in glass due to cooling.
In addition, each student will cast a glass piece to take home! In the evenings, students have lots of fun participating in a variety of activities including indoor and outdoor games, movies, hikes, social gatherings at a local coffee house, a farewell party on the last night, and more. Living, dining and learning together, students have ample opportunity to get to know each other and develop lasting friendships
