Evolution of the Secret City: A Fireside Chat About the Hanford Story

In 1943, the Hanford Site was selected as the newest location for the top-secret Manhattan Project and began 75 years of innovation, discovery and leadership. To honor this legacy and the continued work at Hanford, Leidos will host panelists from Hanford’s past and present to share stories and discuss the evolution of this secret city. A limited amount of free tickets are available. Register here.

The event will be recorded and broadcast on NWPB TV on Thursday, August 2 at 7pm.
