Lafayette Learns: "The Living History of Marie Curie"

Lafayette Learns: "The Living History of Marie Curie"

Adults and older teens - time travel with Lafayette Learns to 1915 to witness the struggles and triumphs of the scientist who discovered a new element that really does glow in the dark. Marie Curie is best known for the discovery of radium and radioactivity, and of the first treatments for cancer, but few understand the obstacles she faced just to get into the laboratory. From the political oppression of her childhood, to scientific emergence and fame, Marie Curie’s story reveals a compelling journey. The program includes a first-person presentation by Marie Curie, a Q&A with Marie Curie, and a Q&A with the presenter, Susan Marie Frontczak.
