Bomb: The Race to Build—And Steal—the World’s Most Dangerous Weapon
With author Steve Sheinkin
Join the Museum for an interactive and dynamic webinar about the largest secret innovation from World War II: the atomic bomb. Hear from author Steve Sheinkin as he discusses the amazing true story behind his 2013 Newberry Honor Book Bomb: The Race to Build—and Steal—the World’s Most Dangerous Weapon. Sheinkin will chronicle the furious pace at which a shocking discovery turned into an all-out sprint to build a destructive weapon across three continents. Museum educators will lead students in a fun demonstration on the composition of an atom and the foundations of a nuclear reaction.
