Following Marie Curie’s steps, discover the paths and the landmarks of this pionneer’s life: the Sorbonne, the garden from the institute of radium, the Ecole de physique et de chimie industrielles where Pierre and Marie discovered polonium and radium. Included, a visit of the Pavilion Curie, part of the “Laboratoire du radium” she ran after her husband death, until 1914.

With striking illustrations, this guided walk covers every aspect of Maria's career, including her youth, the wedding with Pierre Curie, former discoverer of piezoelectricity and specialist of magnetism (the Curie point). We’ll track her major discoveries, twice Nobel Prize-winning, her creation of medical services at the Front during the First World War, her foundation of the Radium Institute as a world scientific center, and her legacy carried on by her daughter Irène, another Nobel recipient.
