Marie Curie, renowned for her work on radioactivity, was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the first person to win in two fields (chemistry and physics), and the first woman to hold a chair position at the Sorbonne. Marie Curie for Kids details Curie's remarkable life, from her childhood under a repressive czar in Poland to her tireless work supporting herself through college to meeting her ideal match in scientist Pierre Curie to her revolutionary research.

Scientific concepts are presented in a clear, accessible way, and a range of activities-from making Polish pierogies to exploring magnetism to using electrolysis to split water-allow for exploration of Curie's life, times, and work.
