Many people in the world don 't realize that one of the greatest minds had possible learning disabilities. Albert Einstein at a younger age was labeled as dull, dyslexic, even autistic or schizophrenic. However, he overcame these “labels” and became very famous for his scientific knowledge. When Einstein was 16 years old, he always wondered what it would be like to ride his bike on a beam of light, 10 years later he came up with a special theory of relativity, which lead him to find out that light always travels at the same speed (which is 186,000 miles/second). Albert Einstein’s career, beginning with an extensive education through physical science, had a lasting influence on the photoelectric effect, Special/General Theory of Relativity and the concept of mass-energy equivalence.
Albert Einstein was very curious beginning at a young age; he started studying the physical sciences and learning music. Born into a non-practicing Jewish family in Ulm, Germany on March 14, 1879. Throughout his childhood his family moved to Italy, Switzerland and finally the United States. In Switzerland, he attended college at the Swiss Polytechnic University, where he graduated with a degree in physics. He struggled to find a teaching position after college and became a patent clerk, during this time he obtained his Doctorate degree and published papers on his research discoveries (Robinson). During this time much of “...his work was viewed as controversial within the scientific community”.…
