We also toured the Glass ReFactory where they recycle old glass bottles into really awesome sun catchers. I love watching people work with glass - I think I missed my calling! It's very cool, because they break the bottles, melt them down to molten glass in their kilns, gather the glass and then press with a variety of graphite-presses that the staff has created, then the glass is cooled in the annealer. They offer their suncatchers for sale - my kids want to go pick some up for possible Christmas presents this year. They are very cool !

We'd give this field trip 5 stars - it was excellent!
