ABOUT THE COURSE

Galileo's Classroom is excited to present a Nuclear Physics course from Instructor Joshua Thompson for students in grades 5-7.

NUCLEAR PHYSICS

(5th - 7th grade)

Nuclear Physics is the study of atomic nuclei, which are the hearts of atoms. Our journey begins at the start of the universe. We then travel through the cores of stars, and will take a look at some of the cool, new research being conducted today. Experiments of our own will be conducted using Geiger counters.
