AIP opens Marie Curie exhibit for kids

A Web-based exhibit of Marie Curie's life and work created for young people has opened.

The Web exhibit, "Marie Curie: Her Story in Brief," explores Curie's turbulent youth, her entry into science and the discoveries that won her lasting fame, her marriage and complex emotional life, her foundation of the Radium Institute as a world center for scientific research and the cure of diseases, and her legacy.

Using photographs, drawings, and extensive quotes from Curie's writings and letters, the exhibit is sponsored by the Center for History of Physics at the American Institute of Physics (AIP) in College Park, MD, and was written by Naomi Pasachoff.

The exhibit may be seen at the AIP Web site.
