Join the exciting hands-on experiments and scenes from Marie Sklodowska-Curie’s life, a Polish-born physicist. She was a scientist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity, the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the first person and only woman to win twice, and the only person to win a Nobel Prize in two different sciences. Moreover, her daughter Irene Joliot-Curie also won the Nobel Prize. Both, Marie and Irene are excellent role models for youngsters.
Participants will radiate with happiness as they discover not only the fascinating world of science but also their potential to become scientists themselves. Come prepared to ask even the most difficult questions to our instructors, Magdalena Osial and Magdalena Labieniec-Watala, who are real scientists from Poland just like Maria Sklodowska-Curie!
