Designed specifically for the needs of educators in and out of the classroom, the ANS Cloud Chamber Kit allows students to view the effects of ionizing radiation through an exciting, hands-on activity. The kit includes materials to build four cloud chambers--the only things the educator needs to provide are alcohol (91% for best results) and dry ice.

Also included are an illustrated step-by-step manual for setting up and using the cloud chambers and a classroom poster to help students identify the types of radiation they may observe.
