Something out of Nothing: Marie Curie and Radium

Out of stock
Marie Curie was born in Poland, the youngest daughter in a poor family suffering under Russian rule. She was a brilliant student and graduated at the top of her high school class-but had to wait eight years before saving enough money to attend the Sorbonne in Paris. There, she devoted her life to scientific research, overcoming poverty and sexism to make one of the most significant discoveries of the twentieth century. Source notes. Bibliography. Recommended Web sites. Index. Winner of the 2007 International Reading Association Book Award and a 2007 NCTE Orbis Pictus Honor Book.
