However, he failed as a business person, and followed his brother's pathway in mathematics and sciences (McElroy 31). In 1683, Bernoulli enrolled at the University of Basel (Young 52). His older brother, Jakob, was a professor of mathematics, and he was teaching about experimental physics at the time. Bernoulli studied medicine and physics, and he achieved his doctorate in 1694, by writing a mathematical dissertation in the field of medicine (McElroy 31). Although his father didn't want him to, Bernoulli also studied mathematics alone with his brother in hopes that this would help him in his career as a physicist (Olanoff 612).
During Telsa’s teenage years, he became passionate about mathematics and science, and was set on becoming an engineer. However his father constantly insisted that he enter priesthood. At seventeen Tesla contracted Cholera, his father told Tesla that if he were to survive that he would be allowed to attend Austrian Polytechnic School at Graz to study engineering. While at college one of his professor told him that his idea of Motor powered by alternating currents (AC) would be impossible, so he spent most of his time trying to prove him wrong. His obsession of proving him wrong got so bad that his father often got letters from different professor... ... middle of paper ... ...nsive.
The Scientist That Overcame the World Albert Einstein was a world renowned scientist that may be considered one of history’s greatest scientist with his creation of the Theory of Relativity or, E=MC^2. He was born in Ulm, Wurttemberg, Germany on March 14, 1897. His father’s name was Hermann Einstein and his mother’s name was Pauline Einstein. (Hasday) Though despite his outstanding success he had very many problems throughout his life that he had to struggle greatly to overcome. Albert Einstein overcame failure by pursuing his intellectual dreams, working hard to make a life for himself, and achieving the nobel prize in physics.
Charles Darwin’s confidence was one of his strong attributes. Darwin did everything he believed in with all of his heart and mind. Darwin was born in Shrewsbury, Shropshire, England. “Nothing hinted at a genius; he didn't do well in school and his dad told him that he would be a disgrace to the family name.” (Leone 11). When his mother died he followed his brother to the University of Edinburgh Medical School, at this time it was the best medical school in the United Kingdom.
Einstein's family played a key role for his development and education. One of the first and possibly most important events in his early years took place when Einstein was five: his father Hermann Einstein showed him a magnetic compass while using it. Albert was amazed at invisible forces which made to needle point north no matter how he handled the compass. This fact is regarded as Einstein'... ... middle of paper ... ...eing a plague and how absolutely hates them both (The World As I See It An essay By Einstein). He was offered to be president of Israel in 1952 and refused it due to his health (Albert Einstein).
Tesla came from a very strict family. When Tesla was growing up, he only had two choices in life, which was to become an Orthodox priest or joining the army. He dreamed of being a famous inventor. His father, being an Orthodox priest, tried persuading young Tesla to join his religious path, but Tesla lacked interest and instead continued his passion in science. Tesla became very ill, based on Wisdom-magazine.com, the journalist, Marguerite dar Boggia, stated in the article Nikola Tesla’s Childhood, “When he was ill, he told his father that if he allowed him to become an engineer, he would get well.
In the first years of school, his parents were very concerned that Albert might have what we called today a “learning disability”; he only showed achievement in the subject of math and science, but did not have a care in the world for any other of the subjects that were taught in elementary school. Besides school, Albert had a liking for the violin and piano during his pre-adolescent years. “Music was the key that helped Albert Einstein become one of the smartest men who has ever lived. Einstein himself says that the reason he was so smart is because he played the violin” (Laurence O'Donnell III) As time passed by, he favored teaching himself; by the time that he was a teen-age boy he had superior knowledge of math and science than his peers. His family then decides to move from Germany to Italy, but Albert decided to stay.
Obviously, as seen in his later life, Darwin had a great potential for knowledge. At sixteen, his father took him out of school and reprimanded him for his idleness. It seems Darwin was too idle and one of his few interests was actually rat-trapping! His father made him an assistant in his medical business so that the young Darwin would apply himself and be kept out of mischief. Then, his father decided that Charles should go to medical school, so that he would follow his father’s and his grandfather’s career path.
Walter White from the hit television show “Breaking Bad” is an unusual character. To give a little background, Walter White was once a very promising chemist, co-founding a multi-billion dollar company. For personal reasons, White sells his portion of the company and becomes a chemistry teacher at the local high school, as well as working part-time at a car wash for extra money. White starts becoming more and more ill, until he caves and goes to the doctor, where he is diagnosed with Stage III lung cancer. He is given only a small time to live and wants to make sure that his family is not left without any money, on top of having to pay all of his medical bills.
The History of Nitroglycerine Alfred Nobel was born in Stockholm on October 21, 1833. By the age of 17 he was fluent in Swedish, Russian, French, English and German. Early in his life he had a huge interest in English literature and poetry as well as in chemistry and physics. Alfred's father disliked his interest in poetry and found his son rather introverted. In order to widen Alfred's horizons his father sent him to different institutions for further training in chemical engineering.
