19th century physics
We will jump into radioactivity: models of the atom, half-life, alpha, beta and gamma rays, and decay. The assessment will be a booklet to fill in through experiments done at university and a visit of Rutherford's Den at the Arts Centre. This is usually one of the favorite part of the year for physics students. You'll enjoy this! Towards the end of the term we will go to Tekapo for the astronomy camp.
