April Photos of the Month - April 2017
It’s that time of year again… Take your Kid to Work Day is rapidly approaching! This April 27th, parents and caregivers across the United States will bring their daughters and sons with them to their workplace to share their professional life and experiences and inspire our future generations. (We’re secretly hoping some of them are inspired to become physicists or historians of science!)
In celebration of Take your Kid to Work Day, we’re sharing a series of photographs of physicists when they were kids! Long before these now-famous physicists became experts in their fields, won Nobel Prizes, or went on to teach others physics, they were curious young children. Can you recognize some of the most prominent physicists in our April Photos of the Month?
If you are interested in sharing the wisdom of perhaps the most well-known physicist, Albert Einstein, with the budding scientist in your life, we recommend Dear Professor Einstein: Albert Einstein’s letters to and from children, edited by Alice Calaprice and with a foreword by Albert Einstein's granddaughter, Evelyn Einstein.
