Summary
COI synopsis: Atomic physics is difficult to teach, if only because the existence of particles as small as the electron is difficult for children to visualise. A special range of equipment for simple, clear experiments, demonstrates the existence and effect of the electron, in a way that pupils of only twelve years old can readily appreciate and understand.
