Maria Sklodowska-Curie
Chemistry Workshop At
Kids Euro Festival

MARYLAND – The Maria Sklodowska-Curie Chemistry Workshop, part of the 2017 Kids Euro Festival, will be held on Sunday, October 22nd, 3:00 p.m., at the KID Museum, 6400 Democracy Boulevard, Bethesda, MD 20817. The science workshop is for ages 6+ with a duration of 75 minutes.

2017 marks the 150th anniversary of Maria Skłodowska-Curie’s birth. A Polish-born physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity, Maria Skłodowska-Curie was the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the first person and only woman to win twice, and the only person to win a Nobel Prize in two different sciences. She is an excellent role model for youngsters.

The workshop combines science and theatre with the pioneering personality of Maria Skłodowska-Curie. Participants will learn through exciting hands-on experiments and scenes from Curie’s life, performed by the instructors. Children will radiate with happiness as they discover not only the fascinating world of science but also their potential to become scientists themselves. Come prepared to ask even the most difficult questions to instructors, Magdalena Osial and Magdalena Labieniec-Watala, who are real scientists from Poland just like Skłodowska-Curie!

Besides research work, Magdalena Osial is also the founder of the educational project ”Manufacture of Scientists” and won the 2016 Science Popularizer Competition for interactive chemistry workshops for kids and seniors.

Presented by the Embassy of the Republic of Poland within the framework of the 2017 Kids Euro Festival. Supported by the Polish Cultural Institute New York and KID Museum.
