ln 4th grade my class had to do a biography project. We had to pick a person and research that person. I picked Albert Einstein. Here is some interesting facts about him.
Albert Einstein’s Childhood
Albert Einstein was born in Ulm, Germany on March 14, 1879. He had a little sister named Maja. He loved Maja very much. When he went to school he was not the best student. He only studied subjects he liked. These subjects where science and math. He would cut class and in his free time he would study the subjects he liked or play the violin. One day his dad gave him a compass and that compass changed his life. The compass changed his life by him realizing that no matter what way he was the compass would always face north.
Albert Einstein’s Adult Life
Albert Einstein barely made it through high school. He made it out by cheating off of his friend’s notes. He would cheat off his friends notes because he did not study all the subjects he needed the subjects he did not study he would cheat of of his friend Mercle Grossman. He also taught himself geometry when he was 12. When he was older he wanted to be a teacher. But the problem was none of his teachers recommend him. Because of that he could not get job Mercle Grossman helped again to get him a job at the Swiss Patent Office.
Soon he married a girl named Mileva. Later in life he divorced Mileva and remarried some else named Elsa.
He also was the most famous scientist of the 1900s. He won the Nobel prize in 1921 for a paper he wrote about how electricity acted like both a wave and a particle at the same time. In 1969 he posted his theory of general relativity which talked about how the force of gravity works.
Challenges that Albert Einstein Faced
Albert Einstein’s teachers hated him. They hated him because he studied only subjects he liked. This made them think why can’t he study all the subjects? Another challenge is that his home/job was taken away because of the Nazi government because he was Jewish. The last change is that he was involved with the atomic bomb making. Because of his equation E=mc2 lead to the making of the atomic bomb. When he found out this he was very upset that his idea was used in such a bad way.
How did Albert Einstein Change the World?
One why Albert Einstein changed the world is by writing the most famous equation in the world. That equation is the E=mc2. E stands for energy, M stands for mass, C stands for celeritas . He also wrote that nothing moves faster than light. And last is that he wrote 4 papers that changed the way people thought about feces. These papers were later called the Annus Mirabilis papers.
