Seeing Radiation:  Nuclear Science Experiments

A Teacher Workshop for Science Educators: Grades 9-12

Friday, March 13, 2015 8:00am-5:00pm

This workshop will focus on using cloud chambers and Geiger counters to help teach the principles of radioactivity and radiation.   Participants will receive a wealth of materials - a cloud chamber kit and Geiger counter, workbooks, and classroom activities.  This workshop will include a tour of research facilities and lectures by leading scientists.  The educational material is targeted for high school science teachers, grades 9-12.  The purpose of the workshop is to enhance understanding of basic nuclear science and provide teachers with information and activities that they can use in their classrooms.

Sponsors:  The American Nuclear Society (ANS) and the Northern California Chapter of the Health Physics Society are proud to sponsor this workshop.  Scientists and engineers from the Northern California Section of both professional societies (ANS-NCS and NCCHPS) are presenting the material.  UC Berkeley Nuclear Engineering Department is generously providing facilities for the event. 

Funding for the workshop is provided in part by the Northern California Section of the American Nuclear Society, in part by the Northern California Chapter of the Health Physics Society, and through individual and organizational contributions to the American Nuclear Society (ANS)
