Program Management System - 21st BCCE - Modeling Stable & Radioactive Nuclei, Radioactive Decay, and Half-Life

Workshop Title: Modeling Stable & Radioactive Nuclei, Radioactive Decay, and Half-Life
Descrption: Using inexpensive materials, participants will learn how their students can construct models for nuclei of both stable atoms and radioactive isotopes. These models are used to help demonstrate different types of radioactive decay. Participants will also learn how to use simple classroom activities that help teach the half-life concept. Presenter Tim DeVries is an exhibitor with the American Nuclear Society.
