The Bomb and Uranium — New Resources

Students today cannot know what it was like to live under the early threats of nuclear war, but some may recall the radioactive decay in Okuma, Fukushima, Japan when a March 11, 2011 tsunami caused a catastrophic accident at the Fukushima nuclear reactor.  PBS LearningMedia has educational resources from two powerful premieres that aired this week: The Bomb and Uranium: Twisting the Dragon’s Tail. The Bomb features accounts from the men and women who witnessed the birth of the atomic age; Uranium delves into the mysteries of one of the Earth’s most controversial elements.
