The Science and Technology of Marie Curie

For the 110th anniversary of Marie Curie's receipt of the Nobel Prize for chemistry comes a science biography that encourages kids to explore her life and her work! In this book, kids will try hands-on STEM activities that explain Curie’s groundbreaking scientific research in physics and chemistry, and discover how her work forced people to rethink the very structure of the surrounding world and the role of women within it.

Curie's commitment to understanding things the human eye can’t even see led to the discovery of two new elements ― polonium and radium ― and to the birth of a new field of research around radioactivity. In the process, she was the first woman to earn a Nobel Prize and the only person ever to win two Nobel Prizes in two different scientific fields. With this book from the Build It Yourself series, kids will use materials they can easily find at home to do everything from building a 3D model of the periodic table to calculating the half life of candies. It's an enthralling way to learn more about Curie — and to spark an interest in chemistry and physics.
