Living With and Learning about Radioactivity: A Comparative Conceptual Study.
Alsop, Steve
International Journal of Science Education, v23 n3 p263-81 Mar 2001
Documents a quasi-scientific comparative study of two groups of 'recent school leavers' in the UK. Studies non-science university undergraduates and explores whether people living with the immediacy and relevance of higher-than-average levels of radioactivity were more knowledgeable and emotionally detached than a similar group removed from this health concern.
