Radioactivity - Distance Lab

Carryout realistic experiments in a safe working environment.


The Radioactivity series of experimental simulations allows you to involve your students in simple and detailed experiments using safe materials.

Radioactivity - Distance Lab provides a very interactive way to allow your students to discover the characteristics of alpha, beta and gamma radiation.

During this simulation your students will gain a firsthand understanding of how different types of ionizing radiation behave over distance in air and vacuum.


100 unknown sources, emitting 1 or 2 types of radiation, provide ample scope for experimental design and scientific problem solving.

This package features a manual which includes 4 experiments as blackline masters:
  • Ionizing Radiation and Distance in a Vacuum and Air
  • Ionizing Radiation, Distance and the Inverse Square Law
  • Ionizing Radiation and Distance with Different Sources
  • Experimental Design - (Simple) Identification of Unknown Radioactive Sources
Available for:
Version 3 - Online in HTML5 format for
Windows, Mac, iPad and Chrombooks.
Visualise and Carryout Realistic Experiments.
Carryout experiments in Experiment mode or in Demostration mode, which allows students to visualise the events.
