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

We have all heard about the Dangers of Radioactivity.

In this class, students will consider the reality of actually working with radioactive materials. They will also learn about the dangers of storing and handling radioactive materials, and ways in which to minimise the risk of their use when necessary.

This is a great class as revision of the subject but also for students wanting to get ahead and build up a wider breadth of knowledge across Physics.
