Albert Einstein Facts, Quotes, Relativity Theory, Science Information Albert Einstein was born on the 14th of March 1879 and died on the 18th of April 1955. Born in Germany to a Jewish family, Einstein made many contributions to the field of theoretical physics. Even when very young, Einstein showed great ability in both math’s and science. He was naturally curious and had a brilliant analytical mind. Einstein worked in a patent office evaluating patents for electromagnetic devices not long after he graduated. He produced perhaps one of the most famous equations ever: E = mc² (energy equals mass multiplied by the speed of light squared).

Peppered Moth Simulation Name:______________________________________________ Objective: Simulate changes in moth population due to pollution and predation, and observe how species can change over time. Introduction: Charles Darwin accumulated a tremendous collection of facts to support the theory of evolution by natural selection. One of his difficulties in demonstrating the theory, however, was the lack of an example of evolution over a short period of time, which could be observed as it was taking place in nature. The economic changes known as the industrial revolution began in the middle of the eighteenth century. Instructions: Click the link below to read more information on Kettlewell's study of moths. After 5 minutes record the % of dark moths and light moths - you will need this information later.

Kids - Albert Einstein Biography Albert Einstein was born as the first child of the Jewish couple Hermann and Pauline Einstein, nee Koch, in Ulm on March 14, 1879. When Albert’s grandmother saw him for the first time she is said to have cried continuously: "Much too thick! Much too thick!" But despite all fear the development of young Albert was a normal one. A short time later the Einstein family went to Munich where Albert first attended elementary school and subsequently Luitpold grammar school. He moved to Bern and was given work at the Patent Office. Einstein’s famous formula: In this mathematical equation, E stands for energy, m for mass and c for the speed of the light in a vacuum (ca. 300,000 km/s). In 1903 he married his college mate Mileva Maric. After Einstein had separated from his wife Mileva he married his cousin Elsa Löwenthal in 1919. Through the political situation in Nazi Germany Einstein left the country in December 1932 and never again entered German ground.
