Marie Curie

Born - November 7, 1867Died - July 4, 1934

Marie was born in Warsaw, Poland. She recieved basic education and also went to Paris where she got a degree in mathematics and physics. She began a science project where ahe met her husband Pierre Curie. She experimented with previous discovered ideas and found more information on them. She was a hard worker even when she had her daughters Irene and Eve. She was a professor in the school of physics and continued higher on the ladder of teaching. She also became the first women to earn a Nobel Prize in physics and a second in chemistry. She was the first scientist to win two Nobel Prizes. Along with that, she also got the prestigious honor. She also worked in World War I as a nurse.

Knowledge ofthe Time

Durning her time there weren't many women into science or even teaching it. There already was a bit of work done previously by other scientis involving atoms, elements, and x-rays

Marie took what was already known about some elements and rays and looked at them again from a different angle. That was how she found Polonium and Radium. She aslo perfected the portable x-ray which she used durning World War I



People of course were pleased to find that there were even more elements. They didn't seem to dislike her being a teacher either, with the fact that they let her have one of the highest positions in the school. People also were grateful for her x-ray because it helped many people durning WWI


Marie was able to find small new elements in some messes of bigger elements. She found that the universe is still smaller than what was thought. She improved medicine of the time. Without her groundbreaking work we wouldn't possible have nuclear powerplants, better working x-ray machines, and the information that there are smaller elements still not found. Her work is important to because we are still looking at what she did in every chemestry class today.


Both of these people were very similar. They both took what they had in their time and went deeper into it finding more information. Both proved that there are smaller things that make up this world and they are in our everyday lives. The only difference between these two is that one knew she wanted to be a scientist and studied for it, while, the other wasn't sure until later.
