VHS Conservation Project
VHS Conservation Project

The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History received a grant from the National Archives and the NM Historical Advisory Board. The museum digitized old film footage from the 1940s to the early 2000s and made these videos available to the public. The digitized videos cover various topics, from World War II pilot training, Manhattan Project veteran interviews and reunions, Nuclear waste disposal, the Apollo 12 Mission, and declassified atomic weapons testing.

This project was generously supported by the National Archives and the NM Historical Records Advisory Board.

Nuclear Science Week and STEM-Related Curriculum
Lessons with a rich assortment of nuclear & STEM-related curricula

Nuclear Science Week (NSW) is an international, broadly observed week-long celebration to focus on local, regional, national, and international interest in 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 curricula.
