Interactive video lesson plan for: What Really Happened the First Time We Split a Heavy Atom in Half

Activity overview:

This episode was produced in collaboration with and sponsored by Emerson. Click here to learn more about their We Love STEM initiative: http://bit.ly/2fnBiHO

When scientists first split the atom, they didn’t realize what they’d done until physicist Lise Meitner figured out they had discovered what we now call nuclear fission.

We're conducting a survey of our viewers! If you have time, please give us feedback: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SciShowSurvey2017
