Bomb: The Race to Build-And Steal-the World's Most Dangerous Weapon Webinar

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 3 continents. Museum educators will lead students in a fun demonstration on the composition of an atom and the foundations of a nuclear reaction.
