Marie Curie and the Power of Persistence

It has been forever since I’ve written! I have so many things to say and share, but when I sit down to write a blog post, I get so easily sidetracked. You too?

Something I want more of here in this space is the sharing of some really awesome things that I find. Whether it’s music, products, books, projects, apps or anything in between, I love collecting and curating and learning about amazing people doing really wonderful things.

I am always on the lookout for unique ways to teach children about legends, heroes, those who we can learn from. The Marie Curie Alumni Association has created a super great book series called My Super Science Heroes and first up, is Marie Curie! Read on to learn more about this cool crowdfunding campaign that starts TODAY! Spread the word and help bring this project to life!

Helping Kids Discover Their Persistence: A New Children’s Book About Marie Curie

My Super Science Heroes is a new illustrated book series for kids between the ages of 5-9 by the Marie Curie Alumni Association


The first book in the series, Marie Curie and the Power of Persistence, uses a novel storytelling approach—written and illustrated as a dynamic superhero story—this book introduces children to important scientists and their key accomplishments in a fun and engaging way.

Unlike any other children’s book about historical figures as it focuses not on the achievements of the two-time Nobel Laureate but instead on her personality traits that are inherent in all young children—persistence.

In Marie’s life story, she relies on her superpower during her ongoing battle with her arch nemesis, Mr. Opposition. In the late 1800s, women were seen as not capable of complex scientific thought and forbidden from attending university in Poland. Throughout her life, society and institutional limitations threatened to block her progress and achievements. However, Marie was determined to become educated and successful at any cost, and she persisted.
