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

Electrons, orbits and ionisation can be a tricky topic to get your head around. 

In this class, students will cover the development of the Bohr model of the atom, including why electrons are now considered to exist in discrete energy levels away from the nucleus.

Students can take this class to delve further into the expansive world of Electrons and Orbits and have a firm background knowledge ready for any assessment.
