Alexander won the Elliott Cresson Medal, because he discovered and invented an object that helped out millions around the country, and billions around the globe. Alexander won the IEEE Edison Medal, because he contributed the Electrical Science community, by inventing something that, in order
The teachers thought he was a mixed up kid so he dropped out and was home schooled by his mother. By age nine he was an excellent reader and loved to experiment from the things he read in the science books. His mother was his biggest supporter. From the ages nine through twelve he had read many chemistry books one in particular was called a school compendium of natural and experimental philosophy he also proceeded to read all the books in the town library pertaining in science and chemistry . Anther book that influenced him throughout his life was called the age of reason (Dolan 20).
Nikola Tesla the Electrical Genius Occasionally a brilliant mind can bring about momentous concepts and ideas that change the entirety of civilization for humanity. An inventor who has turned their concept into reality is behind each and every tool. Each inventor has left an impact on the world, even long after death. However, the inventor Nikola Tesla has left a much larger legacy than most, even arguably more so than the well-renowned inventor, Thomas Edison. Nikola Tesla embodies the true essence of the inventor even more so than his counterpart and archrival, Thomas Edison.
Thomas Edison was born on February 11, 1847 in Milan Ohio. Thomas Edison was one of most famous American inventor and businessman in nineteenth century. He invented many great and remarkable devices during that period. His most famous inventions such as the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and electric incandescent light bulb. Those inventions bring great influences around the world; also his inventions improve the society.
Thomas Edison “American inventor Thomas Alva Edison was a pioneering figure in science whose inventions and innovations forever changed the way people lived all over.” (Thomas Alva Edison Scientist, p.1 par. 2) This famous quote is about the inventor Thomas Edison. Edison was a great inventor because he kept on trying and trying and trying until he finally got his inventions to be perfect. He worked very hard on some of his most famous inventions, such as the phonograph and the lightbulb. Thomas Edison was a significant figure in American history because his invention of the lightbulb greatly helped Americans see and work at night and also inspired others to create better technology.
Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla were two of the most influential minds of the 1800s. Edison, the Wizard of Menlo Park, worked hard his whole life to achieve great feats in science. Tesla, the Master of Lightning, had a brilliant mind and contributed to an electronic growth that changed American history. Thomas Edison is such a familiar name, but Tesla on the other hand is more obscure. Edison is widely known by the American public, but his intellectual equal and adversary is often forgotten.
Benjamin Franklin's scientific inventions and experiments have changed the world for ever. He made great contributions to the scientific community. Benjamin was a great man, with a heart full of gold. He had a great writers mind, and was highly intelligent. Without Franklin, America would never have become what it is now.
The Industrial Revolution brought great advances to humanity. New inventions would come out to help make life easier, and one of the most famous inventors of the era known as “the age of invention” was Thomas Edison. Called “The Wizard of Menlo Park,” Edison is famous for inventions such as motion picture and the light bulb and is considered the most important inventor of “the age of invention” and of all time. However, this is far from the truth as Edison was able to steal these inventions from inventors in order to make a profit. One of these inventors he steals credit from is Nikola Tesla.
Thomas Alva Edison is a man of creativity and innovative thinking. According to Patricia Daniels, author of Thomas Edison, “Thomas Edison is regarded as one of history's most influential inventors, whose contributions to the modern era transformed the lives of people the world over.” Throughout his life span, he managed to achieve over 1,300 patents. A world record, no man could possibly break in their lifetime. From his early life, establishment of Menlo Park Laboratory, to inventing the phonograph and modernizing the first incandescent light bulb, via later years, he is sure the “Wizard of Menlo Park.” Thomas Edison’s early life was filled with downfalls and achievements. He was born on February 11th, 1847, in Milan, Ohio to Samuel and Nancy Edison (Endersby 1).
Scientific and technological progress is one of the most important and far reaching of humanity’s effort streams throughout history. One of the hallmarks of any great society is what new or improved knowledge of the world and how it works that the society can contribute. A strong and vibrant culture celebrates the spirit of invention and innovation. Closely allied with this concept is the spirit of entrepreneurship, considered one of the greatest qualities of the American culture. Americans laud the success of the inventor and salesman alike; while the greatest self-promoters are more fully remembered, the greatest minds are never truly forgotten.
