We had four days to prepare our presentation, so I spent a lot of last week reading about Curie. Two quotes jumped out at me. The first is...
“You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end, each of us must work for our own improvement and, at the same time, share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think can be most useful.”
|Here are 3 of the 17 posters our students made to illustrate Curie's biography.|
"A scientist in his laboratory is not a mere technician: he is also a child confronting natural phenomena that impress him as though they were fairy tales."
(Interesting fact one of my students shared today from her library book: The Curie's "lab" was a shed with a dirt floor!)
