Transcript of Marie Curie

Marie Curie (1867 - 1934)
Maria Salomea Skłodowska-Curie
Her first day of teaching.
The November 15, 1906 Marie Curie gave his
first lesson.
The expectation was high as it was the
first time that a woman giving a class in college.
There came a great number of people,
many of them were not even students.
In that first meeting, Marie spoke about radioactivity.
Her Doctorate

Hi guys, my name is Maria Salomea Skłodowska-Curie, and I know, it's very strange, so you can call me Marie Curie.
Today I'm very very happy because my best friends:
Leví (Livai), Irvin, Gemma, Xóchitl, Arely and the
psychologist Estefania will tell you interesting things about my beautiful life :).
My Biography
Pay attention please!
There we go!
Sorry sorry :O, before continuing, someone of you know something about me?
ok, perfect!
Latest Marie's actions
Marie's Legacy in popular culture
The final stage of my life & my legacy in popular culture.
Levi (Livai)
Hi!, we will tell you some important
things about our friend Marie :)
She was born in Varsovia, Zarato, Poland (7 November 1867).
And died in Passy, France (4 July 1934).
She was naturalized French.
Her main works:
Marie was a brilliant chemistry and physics.
Marie was a pioneer in the study of radioactivity.
She was the first person to win two Nobel Prizes in different disciplines: Physics and Chemistry.
Marie was the first woman teacher at the University of Paris.
Her infancy.
Marie was the fifth daughter of Władysław Skłodowski, teacher in physics and mathematics, like his grandfather.
Her mother was teacher, pianist and singer.
Marie attended clandestine classes.
Her sister Zofia died as a result of typhus.
Two years later his mother died because of tuberculosis.
These events led to Marie lost faith in the Roman Catholic religion and it became agnostic.
First years in
1891: Marie is part of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of the Sorbonne.
1893: Marie achieved a degree in Physics and won first in his class.
1894: Marie knows Pierre Curie, a teacher of Physics, and begin to work together in a laboratory.
1895: Pierre declares to Marie and they married on July 26 in a simple wedding. X - Rays were discovered.
They bought two bikes and spent the summer touring France with them.
Pierre died 11 years later (1906) in a
tragic accident.
Until then, the only woman that had achieved his doctorate was the German Elsa Neumann.
Choice the topic of the Thesis:
Her thesis.
Marie with the assistance of Pierre decided to investigate the nature of the radiation producing uranium salts.
1903: Marie obtained her doctorate, directed by Henri Berequel, through her investigation called: "Investigations on radioactive substances".
Uranium salts
Marie and Pierre discovered that uranium in form of "pitchblende", it was most radioactive that uranium in simple form.
1898: They discovered a chemistry element and named "Polonium" in reference to Poland and political reasons.
1898: They also discovered another chemistry element and named "Radium" for its intense radioactivity.
Marie in 1902 obtained a gram of radium chloride after experimenting with 8 tons of "pitchblende" and shared her discoveries nonprofit, receiving worldwide acclaim.
I will tell you about her contributions in Physics and Chemistry.
I will explain about the Nobel Prizes of Marie.
December 1903: Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded Pierre Curie, Marie Curie, and Henri Becquerel the Nobel Prize in Physics.
Marie was the first woman to be awarded a Nobel Prize.
May 13th 1906: The physics department of the University of Paris decided to retain the chair that had been created for Pierre and to offer it to Marie.
She was the first woman to become a professor at the University of Paris.
She was the first person to win or share two Nobel Prizes.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences honored her a second time, with the 1911 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.
I will explain you about the final stages of Marie's life
Marie proposed the use of mobile radiography for the treatment of wounded soldiers. The car was named after "Petit Curie". Her daughter Irène, 18 years old, begins to help her.
ahhhh!! Help me!!!
In her later years she was besieged by many physical and cosmetic producers, who used radioactive material without precautions.
Marie died blind, on July 4, 1934, in Sancellemoz Clinic near Passy (Haute-Savoie, France), a cause of aplastic anemia, probably due to radiation to which it was exposed in their work. She was buried beside her husband in the cemetery of Sceaux.
Her elder daughter, Irène Joliot-Curie (1897-1956), also won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1935, a year after the death of his mother, for her discovery of artificial radioactivity.
And finally I will explain about the legacy of Marie in popular culture
Successful biography written by his daughter Eve Curie in 1937 (even published in Spanish).
Marie and her husband in their laboratory.
Nobel Prize of Physics (1903)
Nobel Prize of Chemistry (1911)
1943: Creation of an autobiographical film of Marie
1997: Another autobiographical film of Marie
Finally, we will present a video about the life of Marie :)
Pierre and Marie <3
Thanks for you attention!
