Humanity Needs Dreamers - A Conversation with Marie Curie

This program honors a preeminent woman of science: Marie Curie. She was the first European woman to earn a doctorate in the sciences; the first woman to receive a Nobel Prize (for the discovery of radioactivity), the first woman to teach at the Sorbonne, and the first person to receive a second Nobel Prize (a feat not to be repeated for another 50 years). Join us on Sunday, February 4, 2018 and learn the story, discoveries and achievements of one of our greatest scientists of all times.
