Top Ten Scientists You Would Most Want as a Teacher

The Top Ten

Richard Feynman Richard Phillips Feynman was an American theoretical physicist known for his work in the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics, and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as in particle physics for which he proposed the more.

The king of scientific charisma. A fun and fascinating experience it would truly be. Yay!

Hands Down.Hats down. Feynman is the best teacher of all time

Stephen Hawking Stephen William Hawking (January 8, 1942 - March 14, 2018) was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge.

How is this not 1, he is considered almost equal to Einstein?

I choose you professor Hawking to teach us!

Life just got interesting...

R.I.P Stephen hawking :,(- Kevinsidis

Albert Einstein Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science.

Absolutely! But my eyes did keep wondering to Stephen Hawkin too...
Albert Einstein is one of my favourite philosophers. What a tremendous brain!

The particularly wonderful thing about this gentleman: He could explain things simply!

I think we can all argue that this would be awesome.

It would be a dream come true

Carl Sagan Carl Edward Sagan was an American astronomer, cosmologist, astrophysicist, astrobiologist, author, science popularizer, and science communicator in astronomy and other natural sciences.
Nikola Tesla Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current electricity supply system, X rays, Radio, Remote Control, Laser, and Electric motors. Tesla developed and used more.

Very smart, but not as smart as a couple of other names listed here.

Smartest man ever lived...

Michael Faraday Michael Faraday was an English scientist who contributed to the study of electromagnetism and electrochemistry.
Niels Bohr Niels Henrik David Bohr was a Danish physicist who made foundational contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum theory, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922. Bohr was also a philosopher and a promoter of scientific research.

This would be an amazing thing to see.

It would be the greatest moment that would flashed on my eyes I wish that he will teach in my science class then I can nurture and learn his every word of the Quantum theory and so as the other creators but yes that will make me very happy.

David Attenborough

I may have my mind set on physics, and may have stopped biology, but I must say that he would be a great teacher.

An international treasure whose sheer enthousiasm for knowledge is infectious.

Marie Curie Marie Skłodowska Curie, born Maria Salomea Skłodowskap, was a Polish and naturalized-French physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity.
Bill Nye the Science Guy William Sanford "Bill" Nye, popularly known as Bill Nye the Science Guy, is an American science educator, television presenter, and mechanical engineer.

He technically already teaches us, but having to meet him in PERSON if he was my teacher would be phenomenal.

The Contenders

Dorothy Hodgkin Dorothy Mary Hodgkin, known professionally as Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin or simply Dorothy Hodgkin, was a British biochemist who developed protein crystallography, for which she won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1964.

She deserves a lot more attention in today's society

Carl Friedrich Gauss Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss was a German mathematician who contributed significantly to many fields, including number theory, algebra, statistics, analysis, differential geometry, geodesy, geophysics, mechanics, electrostatics, astronomy, matrix theory, and optics.

Just look this guy up. He's incredible.

Isaac Newton Sir Isaac Newton PRS was an English physicist and mathematician who is widely recognised as one of the most influential scientists of all time and a key figure in the scientific revolution.
Werner Heisenberg Werner Karl Heisenberg was a German theoretical physicist and one of the key pioneers of quantum mechanics.
Galileo Galilei Galileo Galilei, was an Italian astronomer, physicist, engineer, philosopher, and mathematician who played a major role in the scientific revolution during the Renaissance.
Neil deGrasse Tyson Neil deGrasse Tyson is an American astrophysicist, author, and science communicator. Since 1996, he has been the Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space in New York City.
James Clerk Maxwell
Richard Dawkins Clinton Richard Dawkins is an English ethologist, evolutionary biologist and author. He is known for his books The Selfish Gene, The Extended Phenotype and The God Delusion. He is also known for coining the word "meme" in 1976, although the word is most commonly used to describe internet memes of today. more.

He brought forth a revolution single-handedly through his book 'The God Delusion', which challenged religion from it's very foundations. BUT, his most impressive work is 'The Ancestor's Tale' in which he evolution is a profoundly beautiful and convincing way. Thank you sir.

I'm a non-believer and even I would hate to be in the same room as him. He's just plain rude and does us atheists/agnostics no favours.

He may Know what He is talking about, but considering his EXTREME bias towards atheism, you'd have a bunch of pissed off parents REALLY fast

Aryabhata Aryabhata or Aryabhata I was the first of the major mathematician-astronomers from the classical age of Indian mathematics and Indian astronomy.

Invented the no. 0.. Penned the value of pi. A true mathematical genius and a great physicist.

Erwin Schrodinger Erwin Rudolf Josef Alexander Schrödinger, sometimes written as Erwin Schrodinger or Erwin Schroedinger, was a Nobel Prize-winning Austrian physicist who developed a number of fundamental results in the field of quantum theory, which formed the basis of wave mechanics: he formulated the wave equation more.

Imagine Erwin explaining his famous paradox to kids hahaaha sounds funny!

Leonardo Da Vinci Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci (April 15, 1452 - May 2, 1519) more commonly Leonardo da Vinci or simply Leonardo, was an Italian polymath whose areas of interest included invention, painting, sculpting, architecture, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology, astronomy, more.
