- Radioactivity
Digital Radiation Meter
AP7593
Straightforward and easy-to-use radiation meter is great for use by beginners and experts in any classroom! Meter is housed in a durable plastic case and uses a thin wall glass Geiger-Muller (GM) tube that will detect beta and gamma ionizing radiatio...
 
Student Geiger Counter
AP5437
Just plug it in and it's working. The Geiger counter immediately detects particles emitted by a radioactive source. As each particle enters the self-contained probe, an audible click is heard. The number of clicks heard over a time interval represent...
 
Radioactive Source Kit, Set of 3
AP8796
Completely safe for use in the science laboratory! Each source is mounted in a one-inch diameter sealed disc and is completely safe for student use. Three radioactive sources are available; Alpha, Beta, and Gamma.  Perfect for showing the differ...
 
Half-Life Simulation - Classroom Activity Kit
AP7194
Roll the dice! Radioactive decay is a spontaneous and completely random process. The probability that a specific atom will decay after a certain period of time can be modeled by another random process, the rolling of dice. In this cooperative classro...
 
Nuclear Fission - Demonstration Kit
AP6883
What exactly is a nuclear reaction? How is it possible for so much energy to be released so quickly? Demonstrate the properties of a nuclear chain reaction with this creative domino-toppling activity. The demonstration starts with two sets of 112 dom...
 
Artifact Ages - Radiometric Dating Simulation - Super Value Kit
AP7198
An archeological site in Flinnlandia was recently excavated and ancient artifacts were recovered! Now it's time for your students to become “real-world” scientists, determine the age of the artifacts, and see how long ago this civilization lived. Stu...
 
Carbon Dating Activity - Super Value Puzzle
AP7185
Find out how archeologists reconstruct the ancient history of the Earth using radiocarbon dating to determine the age of artifacts—everything from nutshells to parchment maps! Students “piece together” the process of carbon-14 dating by arranging a s...
 
Characteristics of Nuclear Radiation - Super Value Laboratory Kit
AP6745
Alpha, beta, and gamma radiation are quite different in terms of their composition and properties. Different types of nuclear radiation require different types of shielding to protect workers from its harmful effects. Radiation protection comes from ...
 
Introduction to Radioactivity and Half-life Experiment Kit
AP8977
Radioactivity and half-life are sometimes difficult for students to understand. With this activity your students will readily grasp the general concepts of radioactivity and half-life determination. Using reusable, simulated plastic radioactive atoms...
 
Nuclear Shielding - Super Value Kit
AP6895
The most comprehensive radioactivity shielding kit available! Using a safe, low-level radioactive source and radiation monitor, students determine the shielding effectiveness of a wide range of materials. Students will quickly recognize the differenc...
 
Radioactive Decay Cards - Super Value Game
AP4555
Nuclear stability and radioactive decay are important concepts to understanding nuclear chemistry, the size of the nucleus, and the energy that holds it together. In this engaging activity, students will determine the natural decay of uranium-238 to ...
 
Radioactivity Half-Life Simulation - Super Value Laboratory Kit
AP6721
Students model the process of radioactive decay by studying the “decay curves” for a variety of multi-sided dice. Radioactive decay is a spontaneous and completely random process. The probability that a specific atom will decay after a certain period...
 
Radon Test - Demonstration Kit
AP1830
Radon is a colorless, odorless, tasteless radioactive gas formed by the natural decomposition of uranium. Radon may be found naturally in soil, rock formations, water, or air. Radon poses no risk when released outdoors. The problem occurs when radon ...
 
Polonium-210, Alpha Source
AP8794
Completely safe for use in the science laboratory! Each source is mounted in a one-inch diameter sealed disc and is completely safe for student use. Three radioactive sources are available; Alpha, Beta, and Gamma.  Perfect for showing the differ...
 
Thallium-204, Beta Source
AP8797
Completely safe for use in the science laboratory! Each source is mounted in a one-inch diameter sealed disc and is completely safe for student use. Two radioactive sources are available: Beta and Gamma. Perfect for comparing the different type...
 
Cobalt-60, Gamma Source
AP8795
Completely safe for use in the science laboratory! Each source is mounted in a one-inch diameter sealed disc and is completely safe for student use. Two radioactive sources are available: Beta and Gamma. Perfect for comparing the different type...
