  1. Cristina Lazzeroni - University of Birmingham

Resources will be presented, regarding how a cloud chamber and a cosmic telescope can be used in a classroom to collect data and perform real physics experiments that can be repeated in a classroom. The experiments involve radioactive decays, and the detection of cosmic rays, and include statistical data analysis and a comparison with predictions based on calculations. Both sets of equipment are available for short term loans for local UK schools. There will also an opportunity to see how an home-made cloud chamber can be built directly at schools.
