Teen Craft: Glowing Jar
I was flipping through Instructables two years ago and came across this amazing project for a glowing sun jar. I was completely sure that the teens would love the program but it required soldering which I 1. Have had several horrible experiences with
2. Soldering didn't feel like something I could pull off with a group of 20 teens ranging between 7th and 12th grade if I had to run the program by myself. (This was before Maker Spaces gained popularity in the library)
However after looking through the instructable I decided to see if I could doctor it to make it more manageable for both myself and a large group of teens.

Glow in the Dark Paint (See note)
2. Take a piece of tin foil, fold it into a square and stick it in the bottom of the jar.
