Hanford Education

Educating for Activism

Educating for Activism is a curriculum focused on the area that became the Hanford nuclear reservation, as well as the Columbia River and the Tri-Cities. It is divided into six modules, each of which highlights a different period of Hanford history: Geology, Native American Tribes, Home to New Settlers, The Manhattan Project, The Cold War, and Cleanup and Restoration. This curriculum has an interdisciplinary focus, using history, society, culture, and the arts to provide a holistic understanding of Hanford and its impacts on the world. The curriculum appeals to multiple learning styles, and each module can be used independently. The goal is to provide users with a greater understanding of not only the nuclear history of Washington State but also the ripples it has left in its wake. In addition to the free online sources, there is a bibliography of relevant texts with discussion questions to promote critical thinking in students.


The curriculum is most appropriate for use in college and high school courses.
