Please contact Georgia Adam on 0141 848 3101 who will be happy to help with all enquiries. We look forward to welcoming you on campus.

WORKSHOP A RADIATION:

Workshop focus is on detection of environmental radiation where there would be an opportunity to use a range of state of-the-art radiation detector systems in order to learn how these different systems can be used to locate and characterise ionising radiation in our environment.

WORKSHOP B PROGRAMMING:

Session focus is on Arduino – programming for the real world. The Arduino is an open software/hardware microprocessor platform which can interact with the real world via digital and analogue I/O using a variety of sensors, switches and actuators (motors, servos, LEDs).
