“Be less curious about people and more curious about ideas.”~Marie Curie
Scientist Marie Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize and the only person to win the award in two different fields — physics and chemistry. Curie’s efforts, with her husband Pierre Curie, led to the discovery of polonium and radium and, after Pierre’s death, the further development of X-rays. She is the known as the grandfather of radioactivity and it is because of this discovery that people today are able to cure cancer and other illnesses. She also pushed the boundaries for female scientific and academic achievements.
In class we will be learning about cause and effect. We will be making chemical reactions, learning how to make slime, different potions, snow, blowing up balloons with carbon dioxide and making elephant toothpaste. All of these fun activities will be mixed with a Harry Potter theme and spells. ~Expecto Patronum!
