And there are museums that have huge collections of this and other radioactive ware. They usually have good procedures for keeping curators safe. I'll be training at Winterthur in a couple weeks.

My grandma lived to the ripe old age of
92, mixing eggs, cakes, and everything she cooked in an orange
fiestaware bowl that now sits in my office behind lead shields.
Seriously though, the one good thing about it is that fact that
it's immobilized, and thus you aren't spreading it around and
don't need to worry about contamination that way (for the most
part). If done right I think it's a great way to display the
concept of radiation. I assume it's a one class period thing, so
exposure time is short, so I really don't anticipate any problems.
Now how many have tied coleman mantles with your teeth back when
you were younger and not as wise?
