Zajęci laboratoryjne – grupy 17 - 30 osób

Programme for groups of 17-30 participants

     Classes for the groups of 17–30 participants are conducted in two subgroups. In each subgroup participants work solo or in two-person teams: in one subgroup doing the exercises at the lab, in the other one exercising with didactic radiation detectors.

     The class starts with a short introductory lecture about work safety and finishes with a joint summary of the results obtained. During the measurements, it is the qualified DEiS staff supervising the course of the classes, during the reporting seminar it is the group supervisor who is in charge of the proceeding.

     The choice of the experiments should be declared and discussed at least two weeks before the classes. The participants should be acquainted with the guide to their experiment. On each stand, only one team is allowed for a subgroup. The experiment titles are presented in the table below.

The activities last from 8.30 to 15:30
