Radioactivity - Penetration 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 - Penetration 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 penetrate different materials and thicknesses.


100 unknown sources, emitting 1, 2 or 3 types of radiation, providing ample scope for experimental design and scientific problem solving.

This package features a manual which includes 5 experiments as blackline masters:
  • Penetration of Ionizing Radiation.
  • Ionizing Radiation from different Sources.
  • Beta Radiation Penetration through Aluminium.
  • Experimental Design - (Simple) Identification of Unknown Radioactive Sources.
  • Experimental Design - Beta Radiation Penetration and Different Substances.
