A Field Trip Zoom Website Visit to the International Museum of World War II

This school year, the International Museum of World War II will be hosting two webinars
through Field Trip Zoom. The first will be in December and the second in May. If you can’t
visit the Museum in person with your class, you can visit virtually.
Any school throughout Massachusetts, or throughout the United States, can sign up for the
webinars.

December 2017 Webinar — Necessity is the Mother of Invention: Technology of WWII

Grades: 6-12th Length: 45-60 minutes Categories: American History, History
Time: December 11, 2017
WWII inspired and required invention, innovation, collaboration, dedication, and a lot of trial
and error. What wartime problems did the Jerry Can, the Enigma Machine, and the Norden
Bombsight solve? Who was involved in developing these technologies? How did these
inventions help win the battle and possibly the war? How has our modern world been shaped by
these inventions of nearly 75 years ago? We will explore close to a dozen technology related
artifacts and understand the tremendous technological innovation that occurred because of the
War.

If you sign up from the Museum’s webpage, through the links above, the webinar will be free for your class.

Britain, Occupied Europe, and America compared during WWII.
