Dr. George Harakas

Glassware is a critical component of most chemistry labs and few people are trained in the field of scientific glass blowing and lamp work. That is no longer the case in the Department of Chemistry at Radford University. Dr. Harakas is integrating scientific glass work into his Advanced Inorganic Chemistry course which you can read about here. Dr. Harakas also provides chemistry students a chance to learn this unique trade throughout the year. He and his students fix broken glassware from labs and show their artistic side creating glass icicles and other interesting pieces.
