Abstract:  Ahead of an upcoming national screening tour, you're invited to experience a digital presentation of Humanity Needs Dreamers: A Visit With Marie Curie (40 mins) with filmmaker Jen Myronuk on Wednesday, July 25th at 5:30pm. As one of the world’s most renowned scientists, two-time Nobel Prize winner Marie Sklodowska Curie is best known for pioneering the field of radioactivity — but few understand the obstacles she faced just to get into the laboratory. What if she could tell her story? Written and portrayed by engineer & scholar Susan Marie Frontczak and produced by STEM on Stage, this presentation is part of an NSF-funded collaborative outreach study with Princeton Center for Complex Materials with preview screenings at PCCM, MIT Kavli Institute & MIT Department of Physics, Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab, Cambridge Science Festival among others along with formal presentations at APS Physics and ACS.
