Entry Description

Beyond Curie is a dynamic, augmented reality-enabled portrait series of 40 notable women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. It was created to make the statement that science belongs as much to women as it does to men. In an angry and contentious societal climate, Beyond Curie is a bold and optimistic celebration of women and our contributions to human exploration, discovery, and invention.

Beyond Curie has partnered with the March for Science to release a series of free posters and is currently exhibiting at the Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh. (beyondcurie.com)
