HUMANITY NEEDS DREAMERS: A VISIT WITH MARIE CURIE
Date and time: Wednesday, November 7, 2018 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM at Abrams Planetarium
This event is sponsored by the MSU Science Festival. The film will be shown after a short presentation by Dr. Shannon Schmoll Director, Abrams Planetarium as we commemorate Curie's 151st birthday.
As one of the world’s most renowned scientists, two-time Nobel Prize winner Marie Skłodowska 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?
Humanity Needs Dreamers invites audiences to meet Marie Curie as she recollects her quest to isolate two elements —polonium and radium. From her childhood in Poland to groundbreaking research in France, Dr. Curie shares the struggles, failures, and triumphs behind her scientific discoveries and remarkable collaboration with companion scientist and husband Pierre Curie.
Masterfully portrayed by living history scholar Susan Marie Frontczak, Humanity Needs Dreamers is a cinematic presentation of the acclaimed one-woman theatrical show. Produced by STEM on Stage, this unique format breaks the digital fourth wall between live theater and film. http://www.humanityneedsdreamers.org
