This IQP project aims at designing two nuclear physics labs for the first-year physics course PH1130 (Modern Physics). Two labs were designed to introduce the basic principles of nuclear science, radiation and detection to the students. In the first lab, students learn about alpha, beta, and gamma radiation by examining the penetrating properties of each type of radiation through different materials. In the second lab, students investigate how radioactive strength varies as a function of distance from the source. After the labs were designed and tested, a few student volunteers performed and evaluated the lab.
