After a slew of business trips and a broken piece of software, I’ve finally got the latest–and last*???–science cards for you!
First up is Marie Curie, the first person honored with two Nobel Prizes! Best known for her work as a pioneer in radioactivity, Curie had a distinguished career that included isolating radioactive isotopes, discovering two chemical elements (she even had one named after her!) and working to cure cancer with radiation.
No stranger to the spotlight either, Joanne Manaster–ScienceGoddess to us commonfolk–is basically a science teacher. It’s more complicated than that, but teaching is what she does. By always spreading the good word of science, ScienceGodess reaches out to students. More importantly, she is an amazing role model and inspirer for young women who want to enter a STEM field because she’s beautiful and doesn’t have to dumb-down in order to fit in. And thanks to her for providing the following info:
