Marie Curie is remembered as a leading figure in science and a role model for women, as she was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize as well as the first person ever (man or woman) to win the award twice. Curie’s efforts, along with her husband Pierre Curie, led to the discovery of polonium and radium and the further development of X-rays.
Both of Curie’s parents were teachers, and she was the youngest of five children. As a child Curie took after her father, Wladyslaw, a math and physics instructor, and was very interested in physics and biology at an early age. When she was only 10, Curie lost her mother to tuberculosis.
Both Curie and her sister Bronya dreamed of going abroad to earn an official degree, but they lacked the financial resources to pay for more schooling. They decided to work out a deal where they would take turns supporting each other while they were in school, and they attended Warsaw’s “floating university,” a set of underground classes held in secret since they could not attend the men’s-only University of Warsaw. For about five years, Curie worked as a tutor and a governess to pay for their schooling, and she used her spare time to study, reading about physics, chemistry, and math.
