me and my 'physics buddies', are doing a presentation on
radiation. As this is supposed to be amied at about GCSE
level we'd thought we'd simplfy it and use sock puppets.
so if anyone has any ideas of a cool radiation/sub atomic
particle theme that could be displayed using socks, then post
it.

(also need to write a song :-s)

It's not exactly using socks, but I used to put little water balloons inside a bigger water balloon and use an incident particle (sharp object) to burst the larger balloon...then the little balloons would move out freely (like in fission), the littlest balloons can be thought of as neutrons, and middle size ones as fission products...you can also have other objects to be beta particles, neutrinos, etc...
