A foremost scientist at the turn of the century, Marie Curie grew up in a family that valued education. She was the first woman to study at the Sorbonne, and the first woman to teach there. She received the Nobel Prize twice, once in physics, once in chemistry. With her husband Pierre, she investigated the nature of radioactive elements, coined the term "radioactivity," and discovered the elements polonium and radium.
