  • Physics → Nuclear Physics → Radioactivity
  • History → History of Radiation → Marie Curie
Josie acts like Madam Curie to explain how she discovered radiation and how it works. Beakman talks about how the fission of atoms produces heat, which makes radioactive materials glow. Beakman sets up a demonstration with mousetraps and ping pong balls (atoms) where he hits one and it causes a chain reaction of all of the mouse traps triggering.
