An affordable device designed for physics classes where students can literarily “see” the radiation surrounding us. It is a miniaturized and low-power solution of radiation camera with single particle counting or particle tracking detector Timepix. The standard MiniPIX EDU system incorporates a single Timepix detector (256 x 256 pixels with a pitch of 55 μm) with 300 or 500 μm thick silicon.
