Participating in activities carried out during the week devoted to nuclear physics experiments, Savremena Gimnazija Year 4 students visited the Faculty of Physics led by their mentors, teachers Marjana Ćirković and Nina Stevančević.
This was not an ordinary visit – the students were divided in groups in order to perform experiments: ionisation chamber and gamma radiation absorption. In the course of these experiments, the students demonstrated a lot of enthusiasm for practical application of their theoretical knowledge acquired through physics lessons at school.
Don’t fear science
Our students were exceptionally pleased realising that the same type of exercises are done by undergraduate students in their final year of studies – this realisation enhanced their motivation to continue their successful work and develop their interests. Thus, they could see for themselves there’s no need to fear science.
