  • On Thursday 8th November, a science workshop was conducted at Scoil Íde Salthill. The purpose of this workshop was to explain to kids the basic concepts on radioactivity and particle detection. A DIY cloud chamber was built in the class in front of the kids to help indirectly observe radiation, including radon alpha tracks.
