This storyboard does not have a description.
Marie Curie grew up in Warsaw Poland with a very Catholic mother and an Atheist father.
She went to Paris to continue her studies in math and science. This is where she met Peirre Curie. They married in 1895.
The couple studied together and discovered 2 new elements, polonium and radium. Together, they won the Nobel Prize in physics in 1903.
After Pierre's death in 1906, Madame Curie continued their studies, winning her second Nobel Prize in 1911.
Recognizing how her research could help during WWI, Curie was made the director of the Red Cross Radiology service.
Curie asked for donations, and requested car companies to transform cars into vans and asked for equipment. In late 1914 there were over 20 radiology vans to go and help wounded soldiers.
