His work with electricity and

his inventions changed the way we

live. But we don’t even remember

his name.

Nikola Tesla was born at midnight during an

electrical storm in 1856. He was a child genius and

invented his first machine when he was only four.

Tesla studied electrical engineering in Austria and

at Prague University, then worked as an engineer.

Then, in 1884, he travelled to America and arrived

with only four cents in his pocket!

In the US, Tesla worked for Thomas Edison, the

inventor of the light bulb. But he left because they

had different ideas and Edison didn’t pay him very


Tesla then worked for George Westinghouse. He

invented an electricity system for the lights at the

1893 Chicago World Fair. It was a great success.

If you’re SAD,

see the light!

Many people feel depressed in winter –

and now scientists think they know why.

In the 1970s,an American engineer

called Herb Kern noticed that in

spring and summer he was happy

and had a lot of energy, but every

winter he became depressed and

lazy. He thought it was because

there wasn’t much daylight in the

winter and asked some scientists to

make a ‘light box’. He put the box on

his desk and after a few days he felt

a lot better. In 1982 the scientists

gave his illness a name – Seasonal

Affective Disorder, or SAD.

In the USA about 6-20% of people have SAD and it

is common in other countries like the UK and

Sweden. People get countries like the UK and

Sweden. People get SAD in autumn and winter,

when the days are shorter and there is less daylight.

It is more common in women than in men. People

with SAD usually sleep a lot and feel tired all the

time. They also eat a lot of sweet food and feel

depressed. The answer is bright light . You can go

on holiday to a sunny country, of course!
