We study the generation of nonlocal correlations by atomic interactions in a pair of bimodal Bose-Einstein condensates in state-dependent potentials including spatial dynamics. The wave functions of the four components are described by combining a Fock state expansion with a time-dependent Hartree-Fock ansatz so that both the spatial dynamics and the local and nonlocal quantum correlations are accounted for. We find that despite the spatial dynamics, our protocol generates enough nonlocal entanglement to perform an Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen steering experiment with two spatially separated condensates of a few thousand atoms.
