Celebrating Centenaries of Famous Discoveries
This collection of resources was devised and published by Association for Science Education (ASE) in the last decade of the twentieth century to celebrate the centenaries of a number of key discoveries in the history of science.
• Beyond the Visible - One Hundred Years of X-rays (1995)
• One Hundred Years of the Electron - published to commemorate the centenary of JJ Thomson's discovery of the electron (1997)
• Henri Becquerel and the Discovery of X-rays (1997)
• 100 Years of Radium - Marie Curie and the History of Radiochemistry (1999)
Each topic is broken down into short SATIS-style units offering a variety of activities for lessons and homework.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
