In grammar school, Albert Einstein studied science and math whenever he could, and he went on to study math and physics in college. He graduated from Zurich Polytechnic in 1900.
After getting married in 1903, Einstein went on to become a professor of theoretical physics at the University of Zurich. He spent time in Zurich and in Prague, and in his spare time, he worked on his theory of relativity. He continued developing the theory, and when it was complete, he won the Nobel Prize in Physics 1921.
During World War II, Einstein and his family left Germany and never went back. He spent the remainder of his life working on new theories and learning all he could about physics.
