I was excited when my friend Paula Mowery informed me July 13 is National Geek Day. Why? Believe it or not, I’m a big geek at heart! I love science. Always have. I learned at an early age not to say “Yeah!” when the teacher passed out the Science books. I also love science fiction, especially Star Trek. And, I know what Leonard and Sheldon are talking about on The Big Bang Theory. Believe me now?
Even though we may laugh at them, what kind of world would we have to today without geeks? Below I have listed some famous ones:
Bill Gates-Founder of Microsoft
Albert Einstein-Theory of Relativity
Steven Spielberg-Film Director
Mary Shelly-Wrote Frankenstein.
Steve Jobs-Cofounder of Apple Computers
Marie Curie-Discovered the elements radium and polonium.
Ada Byron-First computer programmer
Michael Hart-Creator of the eBook.
And there’s many more.
