Jamie JohnsonHost: Jamie (BSc (Hons), MSc, PGCE) is a Science teacher who is passionate about breaking down complex topics into digestible bites for students.

Atomic Models is a topic which comes up regularly across Physics and Chemistry studies.

In this class, students will cover the basics of the modern structure of the atom, starting with the earliest proposed models and then moving on to Rutherford’s model. Some of these concepts will be familiar from both GCSE chemistry and physics lessons. Students will explore the fundamentals of the structure of an atom. 

This class is perfect for any Physics or Science students who want to excel in their knowledge of Atomic Models!
