He was renamed "Martin" when he was about 6 years old. After going to local grammar and high schools, at the age of 15, he entered Morehouse College located in Atlanta, under a special program for gifted students in 1944. He wasn't planning to enter the ministry, but then he met Dr. Benjamin Mays, a scholar whose manner and behavior convinced him that a religious career could be academically satisfying as well.
Schrödinger was introduced to the sciences at an early age, being that his father and grandfather studied chemistry (Abbott 145). Because of the scientific environment his family provided, he was later led to gain interest in the sciences himself. Schrödinger began his early education attending the Gymnasium, a secondary school where his academic interests ranged from science to ancient grammar. Here is where he learned the fundamentals of the scientific disciplines and subsequently resulted in his study of physics at the University of Vienna from 1906-1910 (“Erwin”). Proceeding his work at the University of Vienna, which laid the foundation for his future great discoveries, he took up an assistant position for Max Wien in 1920 (“Erwin”).
He’s known for his songs including ‘Maybellene’ and ‘Johnny B. Goode’. -He was born on October 18, 1926 in St. Louis, Missouri. He was exposed to music at a young age at school and church.

He mistakenly thought that the idea of such a telegraph was new, helping to give him the go ahead and push the idea forward. By 1835 he probably had his first telegraph model working in the New York University building where he taught art. Being poor, Morse used materials like an old artist's canvas stretcher to hold his invention, a home-made battery and an old clock-work to move the paper on which dots and dashes were to be recorded. In 1837 Morse got two partners to help him develop his telegraph. One was Leonard Gale, a quiet professor of science at New York University who taught him how to increase voltage by increasing the number of turns around the electromagnet.
Paul Revere was born in Boston’s North End, in December 1734. His dad name was Apollos Rivoire and his mom’s name was Deborah Hitchborn. His father was a silversmith who came to America as an escapee from religious imprisonment in France. He went the North Writing School when he was 7 and 13 because his dad planned on him to keep the tradition of silversmith trade going.

After this encounter, Tesla studied at the Realschule, Karlstadt in 1873, the Polytechnic Institute in Graz, Austria and the University of Prague. Mentioned by PBS.org, “Tesla was hired by electric power companies in Strasbourg and Paris to improve their DC generation facilities. In Germany and France, he attempted to interest investors in his concept of an AC motor but had no success.
