BIRTH OF A LEGEND Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Kingdom of Württemberg, German Empire to parents Hermann and Pauline Einstein.


EDUCATION Albert Einstein attended Luitpold Gymnasium in Munich, Germany for primary and secondary school. When his father’s electrical business could no longer be sustained, his family moved to Milan. At age 16, Einstein failed to gain admission to Swiss Federal Polytechnic in Zurich, despite scoring exceptionally high in mathematics and physics. He instead attended Argovian cantonal school, and later, the Zurich Polytechnic, where he would go on to earn his Federal Polytechnic teaching diploma in Mathematics and Physics.


ACADEMIA Between 1908 and 1912, Einstein moved around various academic institutions in Europe , leading to his position as professor of theoretical physics at ETH Zurich between 1912 and 1914. In July of 1913, he was voted for membership into the  Prussian Academy of Sciences  in Berlin. In October 1917, Einstein assumed the duties of director at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Physics, and in 1916, was elected president of the German Physical Society. Additionally , he became a Foreign Member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences and in  1922 , was awarded the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics  for “his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect.”


RELATIVITY Einstein’s theory of relativity has two parts: general relativity and special relativity. Watch the embedded video for a brief synopsis.
