In M. Curie, trek back in time and step into Marie Curie’s shoes in virtual reality. Dive into her story. Engage with 19th-century physics and chemistry apparatus, such as an electroscope, an electrometer, and a spectroscope, to find what Curie unearthed: new elements (radium and polonium) that emitted strange invisible rays with no known energy source.
Solve puzzles that unlock special items. Experience the wonder, angst, and joy of a woman who overcame adversity to become one of the world’s greatest scientists.
