History of Scientists Day
Today we honor all scientists, on the anniversary of Albert Einstein's birth. The word "scientist" was coined by William Whewell in 1833. Scientists study and work to gain knowledge that describes and predicts the natural world. They can use the scientific method while doing their work. What they do ultimately is save lives, cure diseases, make life easier, and help save the planet. There are many fields where scientists can work, and for about 10,000 workers in the United States, 79 of them are scientists. This is the thing more than almost anywhere in the world. In total, about 4.7 million people have science degrees in the United States.
One of the most famous scientists of all time is Albert Einstein, so it is fitting that this day be celebrated on his birthday.

In 1933, Einstein renounced his citizenship for political reasons and immigrated to the United States, where he became a professor at Princeton, a position he held until 1945. He became a U.S. citizen in 1940. After World War II, he was active in the World. Federalist Movement and rejected an offer to be President of Israel.
