Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Inquiry into Radioactivity (IiR) is a course created by Andy Johnson at Black Hills State University, where it has been taught since 2004. As discussed in Science Magazine, the overarching goal of the course is to help students with little background in science develop “a functional understanding of ionizing radiation”. We will delve into the course materials and assess what, if any, modifications are needed for future use in Austrian schools.

Assessment and permitted materials

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

Your grade will consist of three parts, weighted equally:
