Event Description

On Thursday, November 17 from 7 pm - 8:30 pm (ET), PCCM will host a digital theater presentation of Humanity Needs Dreamers: A Visit With Marie Curie (45 mins) followed by a panel discussion.

Update: The event will be held online as a virtual event (RSVP is required to participate). 

As one of the world’s most renowned scientists, two-time Nobel Prize winner Marie Skłodowska Curie is best known for pioneering the field of radioactivity — including early experiments to treat cancer with radium therapy — but few understand the obstacles she faced just to enter the laboratory.

What if Marie Curie could tell her story?
Masterfully portrayed by science scholar & performer Susan Marie Frontczak, this engaging digital performance is followed by a Q & A panel discussion hosted by Daniel Steinberg, PCCM Director of Education & Outreach, Scholar/Performer & Engineer Susan Marie Frontczak, and STEM on Stage Co-Founder & Producer Jen Myronuk. Recommended for adults and students (ages 9 & older).
