The old, worn out wooden shed was located behind her and her husband's house and was originally used for storing firewood. Inside the shed, she had a basic setup with a few essential tools for her research on radioactivity. She had simple glassware like test tubes, beakers, and flasks that she used to handle radioactive materials.
Her experiments required precise measurements, so she had scales and balances to weigh the substances she was working with. Additionally, she used simple electrical circuits and batteries to conduct her experiments. She would often set up her apparatus on makeshift tables or benches inside the shed, making the most of the limited space available.
