On March 28-29, 2009, FPRI's Wachman Center hosted 43 teachers from across the country for a weekend of discussion on teaching the nuclear age. In his opening remarks, Walter A. McDougall observed that although students today are not made to crawl under their desks in air raid drills, that atomic power remains, and it is still necessary to raise a nuclear-literate generation. Sessions included: (1) Nuclear Weapons (Jeremy Bernstein); (2) Nuclear Weapons in International Politics (Andrew L. Ross); (3) The Decision to Drop the Bomb (Richard B. Frank); (4) The Nevada Test Site (Troy E. Wade II); (5) The Nuclear Age in the Classroom (Paul Dickler); (6) Cold War Arms Control (Avis Bohlen); (7) Nuclear Weapons Post-Cold War (James Goodby); (8) Does Nuclear Deterrence Apply in the Age of Terrorism? (Adam Garfinkle); and (9) Nuclear Weapons and the Cold War (Hans Mark.)
