Born in July 1856, Nikola Tesla was a brilliant student in his home country. After coming to America, the Serbian-American worked with Thomas Edison before starting his own projects. Although famous for creating the AC current and battling the current war with Edison, Tesla was the creator of many successful inventions and patents. Many of these inventions are still being used and improved on today. This July you can do your own Tesla reading and research and discover the man behind the inventions.

Revolutionary inventor and engineer Nikola Tesla has been called the father of the 20th century. The eccentric physicist developed the alternating current electric power system that lights up the world today. He also invented radio and had to spend years proving it. Tesla hoped the world would find peace and riches through his inventions. Even with his great intelligence, he had trouble finding either of those in his own life.
