"Everything a science film should be." ~ Dr. Lisa Randall, Physicist & Author, Harvard University

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 (who is retiring after 24 years at PCCM!) Scholar/Performer & Engineer Susan Marie Frontczak, and STEM on Stage Co-Founder & Filmmaker Jen Myronuk plus special guests.
