Foundation to host workshop

-A A +A
By Special to the Monitor

Within the top-secret laboratories in New Mexico, the largest and most destructive weapon in history was born. In just 27 months, Manhattan Project scientists from around the world combined recent discoveries in nuclear physics with innovative engineering solutions to create the world’s first atomic bombs. While it has been 65 years since the bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the legacy of the atomic bomb profoundly impacts New Mexico and the world today.

From June 14-18, teachers from across New Mexico will gather at St. John’s College in Santa Fe to explore the social, cultural, political and military implications of the Manhattan Project as part of a professional development workshop.

The program is organized by the Atomic Heritage Foundation (AHF), a nonprofit in Washington, DC dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of the Manhattan Project and Atomic Age.

The workshop includes a special tour of the historic properties now being restored by the Los Alamos National Laboratory for the future Manhattan Project National Historical Park.

Over four days, teachers will hear from prominent historians, authors, veterans, government officials and Pueblo community representatives on the Manhattan Project.
