Our hands-on activities include the simulation of alpha/beta/gamma decay, visualization of particles, radioactivity measurements, simulation of ionising radiation, building your own particle accelerator…and more.
Have a look at our cloud chamber! It makes the invisible visible, allowing us to see delicate proof that there are tiny particles whose story starts in outer space shooting through all of us, every minute of every day.
Is a banana radioactive? Human senses cannot detect radiation, so we need equipment to do this. A Geiger counter (Geiger-Muller tube) is a device used for the detection and measurement of all types of radiation. Have a go!
Build up your own accelerator by placing cubes on a tabletop, and then bring it to life using the acceleratAR app!
