The genius of Marie Curie

00 hours 06 mins

There is much to Marie Curie's remarkable story than just factually reducing it to a closed quiz question of 'Name the 1st  female scientist to win a Nobel?'. This TED Ed video talks about some of those facets in an engaging way. Next time, do not leave the discussion there about enlisting female scientists. Take it forward to discuss the societal constraints through wich female achievers almost always go through to break the glass ceiling.

Ponder over this YouTube comment: "Pierre and Marie Curie won the Nobel. Their daughter Irene won Nobel. Her husband Fredrick also won a Nobel. Nice little family hobby: collecting Nobels."

Take them through a quick quiz.
