Nuclear technologies applied to real world investigations-Teacher Professional Development. (Stage 5, Stage 6)
Recording of a teacher professional development workshop held at the Powerhouse on 21 July 2022. Applying nuclear technologies to real world investigations.
Edited recording of a teacher PD on 21 July 2022 from Powerhouse. Powerhouse and ANSTO researchers discuss nuclear investigations of cultural artefacts. How can teachers use digital assets from the Invisible Revealed exhibition to teach real world applications of nuclear technologies. Teaching strategies and an activity on the study of a Lydian coin to determine if it real or a fake will assist teachers plan and deliver complex content in an engaging forensic manner.
