This is a 18 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on The United States & WW II - The Manhattan Project. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
Early in 1939, the world's scientific community discovered that German physicists had learned the secrets of splitting a uranium atom. Fears soon spread over the possibility of Nazi scientists utilizing that energy to produce a bomb capable of unspeakable destruction. They believed that the Nazi’s would certainly use it on the civilian population of some large city, probably London, Moscow or on a large population of Jews.
Scientists Albert Einstein, who fled Nazi persecution, and Enrico Fermi, who had escaped Fascist Italy, were now living in the United States. They agreed that the President must be informed of the dangers of atomic technology in the hands of the Axis powers.
At first, FDR saw neither the necessity nor the utility for such a project, but agreed to proceed slowly.
The presentation covers the following:
