History Of Tesla

Tesla Education, the name and trademark of our international education, is in recognition of the eminent scientist Nikola Tesla. The Tesla Education brand is based on the founder’s vision to develop students holistically with strong ethics, innovative thinking skills, and academic excellence, especially in the Sciences, Technology, Design, Business, and also physical development, socially and spiritually.

Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, and mechanical engineer. He was one of the ten most respected scientists of all time. All of his inventions – about 300 of which were patented – were forward-looking and that’s why he is called “The inventor of the 20th century”.

The 10 greatest inventions of Nikola Tesla that made him a pioneer in the field of science and technology: Alternating current, Tesla coil, Magnifying transmitter, Tesla turbine, Shadowgraphs, Radio, Neon lamps, Hydroelectric power, Induction motor, Radio controlled boat.

The inventions created during Nikola Tesla’s life paved the way for technology that we can’t live without today. Hopefully we will see more geniuses like him in the future!
