Tracy Drier Receives Local American Chemical Society Outreach Award

The Wisconsin Local Section of the American Chemical Society has named Master Glassblower Tracy Drier as a 2017 Local Section Outreach Volunteer of the Year. The award recognizes Drier’s many educational outreach efforts. Each year, he takes the Wisconsin Firewagon, a portable glassblowing cart, to a number of classrooms, public events, and other venues to demonstrate the properties of glass. His efforts expose hundreds of K-12 students, their parents and teachers, and the general public, to scientific glassblowing and general scientific concepts.
