Scientific Glassblowing Technology: A Suggested Two-Year Post High School Curriculum.
Salem Community Coll., Penns Grove, NJ.; New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Vocational Education.; Rutgers, The State Univ., New Brunswick, NJ. Curriculum Lab.
This curriculum guide, designed as an aid in planning and developing a 2-year post-secondary curriculum in scientific glass technology, provides guidelines for the use of administrators, supervisors, and teachers. Developed by a regional group of faculty and staff at a technical institute, this suggested curriculum outline would also be applicable for a part-time program for employed adults. A program rationale, resource lists, and descriptions of laboratory experiments are included. General program development considerations are detailed, emphasizing the role of library facilities and the use of equipment characteristic of scientific glassblowing technology. Course descriptions for four semesters of 15 class hours and 15 lab hours each are presented, grouped into the following categories: (1) technical courses, (2) mathematics and science courses, (3) auxiliary or supporting technical courses, and (4) general courses. Based upon the experience of educators and industrialists with experience in scientific glassblowing technology, this guide should prove valuable for developing similar programs to meet local and national manpower needs in this field.
