Anthing I can Do to make this speech a little bit more interesting for the audience?
Show a video of a nuclear bomb going off and scream about how it’s all Enstein’s fault humanity is doomed.
talk about him getting his brain cut out without his families permission
Not difficult! The guy was a very well rounded genius. Include some facts that “bring him down to earth” a bit, so to speak. Make him seem like a real person in addition to one of the 3 or 4 greatest human minds that have ever existed. This could help:
U could talk about how how GPS could not exist without the theory of relativity that he came up with.
I successfully held back the urge to make a joke here. But I realize that many young people ask questions here so I won’t. (Yet, I did chuckle to myself.)
You might consider using the famous photo of Einstein sticking out his tongue at a photographer. (He basically was fed up with the “paparazzi” and it was a very human reaction.)
If your audience has basic math skills, I think it is very interesting to illustrate with some numbers just how HEAVY an object becomes as it nears the speed of light. It is an asymptotic line and I think some of Einstein’s equations are some of the most interesting illustrations of this mathematical phenomena.
do questions at the end, lots of pictures and maybe some random facts about him
dress up like him
The fact that you can slow down time by moving really fast has always been pretty interesting to me.
Talk about the twin paradox.
simple and intriguing.
