Online Educational Resources

Please consider making a donation or becoming a member of this wonderful non-profit museum.

Welcome to our rich supply of educational offerings and online resources!

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History remains temporarily closed due to COVID-19, but it is our pleasure to share our museum's mission with the community through our amazing online resources.

We hope to stay fully engaged with our visitors, followers, and supporters during these unprecedented times, and we invite you to explore and enjoy our many educational offerings and wonderful online resources.


600 Interviews from the men and women who worked on the Manhattan Project

Through our collaboration with the Atomic Heritage Foundation, we have 600 interviews of the men and women who worked on the Manhattan Project on manhattanprojectvoices.org. This public archive of oral history collections of Manhattan Project veterans and their family members includes audio visual interviews with General Leslie R. Groves, General Paul Tibbets, and a transcript of an interview with J. Robert Oppenheimer.


Virtual Tours of the Manhattan Project Sites

It is again through our partnership with the Atomic Heritage Foundation that we welcome you to "Ranger in Your Pocket," an in-depth website (atomicheritage.org/tours) filled with virtual tours of Manhattan Project sites. Each tour features audio/visual vignettes drawn from interviews with Manhattan Project veterans and their families. Take a self-guided tour of Hanford's B Reactor or Bathtub Row at Los Alamos, all from the comfort of your home.


Nuclear Science and STEM Related Curriculum

Nuclear Science Week (NSW) is an international, broadly observed week-long celebration to focus local, regional, national and international interest on all aspects of nuclear science. This event was founded by the National Museum of Nuclear Science & History eleven years ago, and we continue to chair the international event and operate the amazing website. NSW takes place each year on the third week of October, and each day of NSW provides for learning about the contributions, innovations, and opportunities that can be found by exploring nuclear science. Nuclearscienceweek.org promotes education in many areas of STEM and nuclear science, and it is our pleasure to share our LESSONS page with a rich assortment of nuclear and STEM related curriculum.


SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS TO DO FROM HOME

It is with great pleasure that we continue to update and add to our National Museum of Nuclear Science & History YouTube channel. Through this platform, we work to bring you exciting science experiments you can do at home, educational tours of our museum, and important updates. Our education team is also working from the safety of our their homes to cultivate possible extension activities to add to our ever-growing resources for our community. You won't want to miss any of this!
