The Manhattan Project Electronic Field Trip

Students in grades 7–12 are invited to join The National WWII Museum for a free cross-country virtual expedition on February 4, 2020, to discover the science, sites, and stories of the creation of the atomic bomb. Two live webcast sessions are available: Session 1, 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. (CT) and Session 2, 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. (CT). During each session, student reporters will examine the revolutionary science of nuclear energy in the museum’s exhibits and the race to produce an atomic weapon in complete secrecy. They will explore the world’s first industrial nuclear reactor at the massive and remote Hanford site in Washington State and travel to the undercover laboratory and test site in New Mexico to learn about the team of physicists who created the detonating device and witnessed its destructive power firsthand. Student reporters will also uncover the stories of mobilization, collaboration, and innovation to understand how the results brought about the end of World War II and forever changed the world. This interactive exploration features live polling and a Q&A opportunity, so students can participate without ever leaving their classroom. Answering students’ questions will be a research professor at George Washington University and member of the Science and Security Board at the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. Classroom participation is free but requires advance registration.
