School Library Connection "Every STEM teacher and school librarian should absolutely add this title to their collections." A science biography that delves into the world of Marie Curie, a person who revolutionized the way we perceive the universe while getting the world to question gender roles and social norms. Follow in her footsteps with hands-on STEM activities! In The Science and Technology of Marie Curie, readers ages 9 through 12 explore 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. Her 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 became the first woman to earn a Nobel Prize and the only person ever to win two Nobel Prizes in two different scientific fields, all as she reset society's ideas about women's roles in society. By learning about the work of Marie Curie, kids gain insight into the atomic universe through hands-on STEM activities, essential questions, text-to-world connections, and links to online resources that encourage readers to take a closer look into everything going on around them. The Science and Technology of Marie Curie is part of a set of three Build It Science Biographies that capture the curiosity of three science revolutionaries who were able to glimpse beyond the limits of human experience and make discoveries that continue to resonate today. Other titles in this set include The Science and Technology of Leonardo da Vinci and The Science and Technology of Ben Franklin.
