- Setting up a quantum physics group, an interesting proposal to which I immediately replied, “yes”. We had 15 at our first meeting which seemed to go down well. I gave out ‘homework’ on gamma rays, neutrinos and the positron. At the following monthly meeting we examined the homework and a ppt on radioactivity was shown. At the subsequent meetings we looked at Carbon dating, Thorium decay, quarks and the electron shell. Although it sounds advanced, the group, which has remained basically the same, has accessed it and have learnt together in an interactive way. I believe that presenting, what would seem to be, a very difficult subject in a simple and accessible way helps the learning experience to be more enjoyable.
