Are You Smarter Than Albert Einstein?

Albert Einstein was a brilliant scientist and a humanitarian. He is widely known for his theory of relativity, which changed the way scientists view the relationship between time and space, but he also made many other contributions to science.

Einstein was born on March 14, 1879, in Ulm, Germany. While he was still young, his family moved to Munich so that his father could find work as a salesman. His parents were not well-educated people, but they encouraged their son’s interest in math and physics.

In 1896 Einstein enrolled at the Swiss Federal Polytechnic School in Zurich to study physics and mathematics. After graduating from college in 1900, he began working as an assistant under physicist Max Planck at the University of Berlin.

Einstein married Mileva Maric in 1903 and they had two sons together: Hans Albert (1904) and Eduard (1906). The family moved to Prague when Einstein received his doctorate degree from Zurich University in 1905. He became a professor at Zurich University shortly thereafter but resigned in 1913 to teach at the University of Berlin where he remained until 1933 when Hitler came to power and forced him out of Germany because he was Jewish.
