Course Description

This laboratory course which is suitable for non-science majors will provide the student with an opportunity for some hands-on experience with modern equipment used to identify and quantify levels of radioactivity in the environment. Students will measure radiation from a variety of sources and will determine concentrations of radionuclides in several environmental samples including making measurements of the radon levels in the air of their own homes. Students will also study the effects of ionizing radiation on the germination and growth rate of exposed seeds. Satisfies Gen Ed science requirements for non-science majors. Does not satisfy science requirements for Science majors but may be used as a free elective by Science majors.
