A performance in character by Susan Marie Frontczak

Marie Curie’s discovery of radioactivity revolutionized our world. Curie lived a century ago in a time when no one expected a woman to study science. Curie was the first woman in France to receive a doctorate in the sciences, the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize, the first person to receive a second Nobel Prize (a feat not to be repeated for more than 50 years), and the first woman to teach at the University of Paris (“the Sorbonne”) in its 600 year history.
