What was life like for women and women scientists during World War II and the Manhattan Project?
You can join National Park Service staff on Saturday, December 21, as they discuss the social changes that occurred during World War II and how that affected women in the Manhattan Project. The Manhattan Project was a top-secret federal program to build the world’s first atomic weapons during the war, and it included Oak Ridge.
The December 21 program is free to the public, but if you would like to explore the Children’s Museum, you will need to pay admission at the front desk. The Children’s Museum is located at 461 West Outer Drive in Oak Ridge.
Next week’s free program will take place in the Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge inside the Imagination Gallery on Saturday, December 21, at 2:30 p.m. The program will outline the life for women before, during, and after World War II, a press release said.
