Troll Quotes – Science Classroom #1

10 Jan

Assigment: Find an image of a well known figure, add to it a famous quote by someone related in some way to the figure in the image and then attribute the quote to a third, related figure. From the official site: How It Works 1) Get a picture of someone people idolize. Obi Wan Kenobi, Barack Obama, Captain Kirk — any beloved public figure will do. 2) Slap on a famous quotation from a similar character from a different book or movie. Pick something close enough that a non-fan might legitimately confuse them.

I took a picture of a famous scientist (Albert Einstein) and took a different quote from Isaac Newton and the I named it by another famous scientist Marie Curie. Obviously the picture is of a male and the name is a female name. This can be used in a science classroom where students can look up famous scientist and see what they did and instead of learning about just one particular scienctist they can learn about three in one assigment.

Albert Einstein–  Einstein completed his General Theory of Relativity and in 1921 he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics

Isaac Newton–  Newton described universal gravitation and the three laws of motion, which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. Newton showed that the motions of objects on Earth and of celestial bodies are governed by the same set of natural laws, by demonstrating the consistency between Kepler’s laws of planetary motion and his theory of gravitation, thus removing the last doubts about heliocentrism and advancing the Scientific Revolution.

Marie Curie- Curie discovered the mysterious element radium. It opened the door to deep changes in the way scientists think about matter and energy. She also led the way to a new era for medical knowledge and the treatment of diseases.

    Great idea, killing three birds with one stone.Would it be worthwhile for students to research some of the bold steps other scientists and inventors took to discover new ideas and products?

      Yup exactly what I was trying to do.
