PAN Laboratory Activities


Overview

The PAN (Physics of Atomic Nuclei) workshop was offered during the summer of 2010 with monthly follow-up sessions during the 2010-2011 school year.  During the workshop teachers were involved in a variety of hands-on simulations and lab activities to enhance their understanding of the physics of atomic nuclei. Most of the laboratory activities used during the workshop are listed below and are in a variety of formats.  If you need the activity in a different format, please send your request to Judy.Vondruska@sdstate.edu.
