Description

The Manhattan Project National Historical Park is a partnership between the National Park Service and the Department of Energy that tells the stories of top-secret sites in Los Alamos, NM; Hanford, WA; and Oak Ridge, TN that were created as part of the Manhattan Project during World War II. Aimed at developing an atomic weapon before Nazi Germany, the Manhattan Project successfully produced two of the most powerful weapons the world had ever seen, helping bring an end to the war and ushering in the Atomic Age.

This handbook will help you discover why the Manhattan Project National Historical Park is one of these special places. Allow about 3 hours to earn a Junior Ranger badge. Activities in this Junior Ranger book can be completed by taking a tour of the B Reactor National Historic Landmark.
