An immersion in the Curie Laboratory

A cross between comic, animation, historical novel and science lesson, The Curie Method aims to introduce readers to the scientific instruments the Curies used and to make their research on radioactivity easier to understand.

In a clear but entertaining way, it explains how their tools worked and shows the various stages in their discovery of radium and polonium to demonstrate that the two scientists used both their scientific intuition and their mastery of the tools needed to make these discoveries.

This “augmented” comic is designed specifically for teens and young adults. As they read the comic on their tablets or smartphones, they can open up original documents from the Curie Museum archives to learn even more about history and science.

A project created in the framework of the 2019 call for projects to promote cultural tourism launched by the Paris Region Cultural Affairs Bureau.
