Atoms to Astrophysics

KS3-4
Duration 1.5h

A story of the journey from the centre of the atom to the outer limits of the universe, told using particles, waves and energy. Students experiment with illuminating practical activities, participate in demos and build their very own cloud chamber to directly observe alpha particles and appreciate how understanding of the universe actually starts with understanding its smallest particles.
