Summary
Marie Curie was a groundbreaking scientist who became the first woman to receive the Nobel Prize. Curie was born in Poland in 1867, the daughter of two teachers. She excelled at school, but had to struggle to go to college. While she was studying at the Sorbonne, she met Pierre Curie, who would become her husband and partner in scientific discovery. They worked together in their laboratory, studying uranium rays. In 1903, they received the Nobel Prize in Physics for their work. After Pierre's death in 1906, Curie raised their two children and continued her research with great determination. She won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry in 1911 for the discovery of radium and polonium
