In this session we will explore radioactivity at GCSE level. We will look at some misconceptions and a variety of activities to address them, including modelling and simulations. We will be showing some Virtual Physics Lab (VPL) models and those attending the session are entitled to request a free VPL licence. Although we won’t be using radioactive sources there will be balloons, sweets and possibly cans of beer!
This session is led by the London, East Anglia and Kent (LEAK) regional IOP coaching team – everyone is welcome to attend.
Who is this event suitable for?
This event is for all those teaching physics.

Experienced IOP coaches will host the session and will be there to expand on the content, answer your questions and provide support.
