Through the use of a DIY $5 particle detector, students can observe subatomic particles in the classroom. With extension activities diving into biology, chemistry, earth and space science, students are given opportunties to explore the radiative world around us (and teachers can easily differentiate activities for their students). This presentation will provide hands-on opportunities to "put on the student hat" and work with these simple particle detectors and use their "teacher hat" to see how these nifty devices can be used in the classroom. You'll even walk away with an engaging 5E lesson and all associated materials to bring immediately back into the classroom!
