Top Ten Scientists You Would Want As a Teacher


The Top Ten

1 Richard Feynman 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! - PositronWildhawk

3 Albert Einstein Albert Einstein

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

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

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

4 Carl Sagan Carl Sagan Carl Edward Sagan was an American astronomer, cosmologist, astrophysicist, astrobiologist, author, science popularizer, and science communicator in astronomy and other natural sciences.
5 Nikola Tesla 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 more.

Smartest man ever lived...

6 Michael Faraday Michael Faraday Michael Faraday FRS was an English scientist who contributed to the study of electromagnetism and electrochemistry.
7 Niels Bohr 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. - PositronWildhawk

8 David Attenborough 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. - PositronWildhawk

An international treasure whose sheer enthousiasm for knowledge is infectious.

9 Marie Curie Marie Curie Marie Skłodowska Curie, born Maria Salomea Skłodowska [ˈmarja salɔˈmɛa skwɔˈdɔfska], was a Polish and naturalized-French physicist and chemist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity.

The Contenders

11 Dorothy Hodgkin 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 - PositronWildhawk

12 Richard Dawkins Richard Dawkins

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

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.

13 Aryabhata 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.

14 Erwin Schrodinger 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!

15 Werner Heisenberg Werner Heisenberg Werner Karl Heisenberg was a German theoretical physicist and one of the key pioneers of quantum mechanics.
16 Carl Friedrich Gauss 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.

17 Galileo Galilei 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.
18 Sean Carroll Sean Carroll
