The electromagnetic spectrum is the range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation and their respective wavelengths and photon energies. In this class, students will gain a better understanding of non–ionising radiation by looking at all the parts of the electromagnetic spectrum. Students will also learn about the uses and dangers of non- ionising radiation. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 and 11 and is a great class to use as a revision tool!
