Description:

This resource provides a brief biography of Marie Curie, born Maria Sklodowska on November 7, 1867 in Warsaw, Poland. She would become famous for her research into radioactivity, and was the first woman to win a Nobel prize. She was awarded the 1911 Nobel prize for chemistry, for isolating radium and studying its chemical properties. In 1914 she helped found the Radium Institute in Paris, and was the Institute's first director. When the first world war broke out, Madame Curie thought X-rays would help to locate bullets and facilitate surgery. It was also important not to move the wounded, so she invented X-ray vans and trained 150 female attendants. This resource is appropriate for all users, particularly for girls and women, because it acknowledges women's contributions to STEM. Copyright 2005 EDC
