Learn how to use Geiger counters to detect radiation from background and man made sources. Teachers who complete the workshop receive a certificate of completion for 8 contact hours (.8 CEUs), a CD V-700 Geiger counter, a teacher resource book with ideas for classroom use, and information about radioactive sources that can be safely used in the classroom. This year, home radon kits will also be provided, thanks to a generous donation from RSSI.
This popular workshop includes classroom experiments and demonstrations crucial to making classroom learning come to life.
