With the approaching birthday of Marie Curie, a name famililiar to many due to the cancer charity named after her, I thought it would be useful to bring together a group of resources which explore the work of Marie Curie and others in the field of radioactivity.

In addition to using these in science lessons, you might like to select from them as supporting material for a whole school assembly or debate. Would your pupils take the risks that Marie Curie did in order to discover more about radiation?
