Biography: Marie Curie The Woman Who Changed the Course of Science by Philip Steele

Read the inspiring story of Marie Curie's life, from her early years growing up in the heart of Poland to her Nobel Prize in physics. As an ever-curious child, Marie proved a sensitive girl and an excellent student. She went on to study physics at the Sorbonne - one of 23 women among 2,000 students - and was rated first above them all. Following their experiments with radioactivity, Marie and her husband Pierre received the Nobel Prize in physics. In 1911, after Pierre's death, Marie was awarded a second Nobel Prize, this time in chemistry. Her groundbreaking work as a scientist and a woman changed science forever.
