Nuclear Power Interview Lesson

Discussion in 'Science' started by hadron, Apr 5, 2011.

  1. Maybe too late for you now, but there is quite a lot of good material on the Fukushima plant available on the internet now. You could focus on the radioactive iodine & caesium that have been released & (back in your comfort zone) talk about their effects on humans, plants etc, how they will enter the food chain & how long they will be in it (iodine has a half-life of 8 days if I remember rightly & Caesium 30 years). Plus the different effects of radioactivity on infants & young children as opposed to older pupulations.
    I have had an impromptu lesson on this (as a physicist - so more in my comfort zone) and there were a lot of questions from the pupils - so a bit of reading around could pay dividends.
