About The Curie Society

In 1903, Marie Curie founded a clandestine society where brilliant women could pursue the furthest reaches of their intellect. The Curie Society still covertly exists today in secret chapters at dozens of universities worldwide!

When Simone, Maya, and Taj arrive at Edmonds University, they think they’re simply starting their coursework, but after a strange night of puzzles and coded communications, they are introduced to The Curie Society. Almost immediately, they are deployed on their first urgent mission! A mysterious criminal network has stolen research data from a top-secret Curie de-extinction lab, and if no one intervenes, it will soon be sold to some of the world’s worst elements.

These new recruits will have to use all their specialized scientific skills to protect the Curie Society and save the world – or their first mission may be their last!

Sign up for email updates about the recruits.


Biology and life science wunderkind, 15-year-old Simone may be the youngest recruit, but that’s never stopped her from tackling any challenge. While she may come across as shy, Simone is a brave and loyal friend to her Curie team. Her energy and quick thinking are second to none during the most dangerous missions.

As the Curie Society’s globe-trotting math genius, Maya loves being in the center of the action and strives to execute at the highest possible level. Fashionable, bright, and driven to achieve, she gets the team out of the stickiest situations with her charm and razor-sharp intellect.

Always moving to her own rhythm, Taj brings a unique perspective to the Curie Society along with her mastery of technology. Creative and rebellious, Taj is equally at ease on stage or in her coding cave, finding patterns and innovative solutions to the Society’s most complex and dangerous problems.

Julia Robninson was a mathematician noted for her contributions to the fields of computability theory and computational complexity theory—most notably in decision problems. Her work on Hilbert's tenth problem played a crucial role in its ultimate resolution. Happy Birthday Julia Robinson, thank you for your contributions to mathematics!

As scientists, engineers, and mathematicians, our minds are always trying to decipher data. For example, optical illusions occur when our brain is trying to interpret what we see and make sense of the world around us. But these images that our brain creates may or may not be real...
Check out some of these optic illusions - What do *you* see?

One of the latest scientific finds is using recovered DNA to "genetically resurrect" an extinct species — “De-extinction!” Can you imagine if we could bring back wooly mammoths after thousands of years? If you didn’t get enough details from Curie Society’s own Dr. Guo, you can learn more from this latest NPR article by Scott Neuman:

Esther Lederberg was a microbiologist and pioneer of bacterial genetics. The lambda phage is a key tool in molecular biology, it has proven particularly helpful in understanding the transfer of genetic material between bacteria, the mechanisms involved in gene regulation and how pieces of DNA break apart and recombine to make new genes.
