‘Curie Me Away!’ Comes To Los Alamos, Taos And Espanola



Marie Curie has been an inspiration to aspiring scientists, particularly female scientists, for over a century, but who was she really? After all these years, why is her legacy still so captivating and her research so relevant?

For answers to these questions and more, please join the Bradbury Science Museum Association (BSMA) for the New Mexico debut of the radioactive musical Curie Me Away!  Based on the science, life, and discoveries of Nobel Laureate Marie Curie, the musical is performed by Matheatre, an acclaimed STEM-based touring company dedicated to promoting scientific literacy and intellectual curiosity.

Throughout the performance, core chemistry concepts (compounds and reactions, groupings on the periodic table, transmutation, radioactive half-life) are reinforced through lyrical metaphor in a biography of discovery. With emotional range, a powerful message for women in STEM and their collaborators, and lots of science–it’s the radical story of a persistent woman who changed our understanding of the universe.

This inspirational (and free!) show is great entertainment for the entire family, so be sure not to miss this limited engagement.
