Curriculum materials

Nuclear Physics - SPICE secondary science teachers’ enrichment program, a partnership between the WA Department of Education and The University of Western Australia 

Outreach activities

MRI Mystery Box - Demonstrate the ability of MRI to image soft tissues, and the effects of viscosity on MRI images.  The MRI images are examined on a computer by participants, in two applications in which they identify fruits and distinguish between a cooked and raw egg. If you wish to access these activities, please contact the Biomagnetics Research Group.
