Our radioactive world

Discover and measure radioactivity in everyday objects, from brazil Nuts to potassium rich bananas, see how naturally occurring radioactivity is found in the most unlikely of materials and how simple techniques are used to safeguard people who work with radiation.

The SRP will bring you a number of fun experiments designed to demonstrate the maths and science of radiation protection, as well as the opportunity to study half-life and use the statistics to radioactive decay.
