    #scientist I read a book on Albert Einstein. I was surprised at how much I liked this book. I learned that Albert was extremely forgetful, despite being a genius. He also did not like many of his school experiences, although he enjoyed learning. I was shocked to learn that his adult home-life had been a mess. Even though his parts of his…[Read more]

    Isaac Newton lived from January 4th, 1643 – March 31, 1727. Mostly known for his description of gravity and laws of motion, Newton was very successful. He actually invented calculus before Leibniz did, but Leibniz published a book about it first, and claimed all credit. He contributed greatly to modern science and mathematics.

    I chose Benjamin Franklin. Benjamin invented the lightning rod. He used a kite and some string and attached a key on the bottom. Lightning shot through the air and a spark flew. It zapped him hard but He proved that lightning was electricity. The gadget he created saves many buildings from burning down today. #scientist
