Albert Einstein (1879–1955), one of the foremost scientists and public figures of the 20th century, revolutionized our views of time and space, matter and light, gravitation and the universe.

The Einstein Papers Project is engaged in one of the most ambitious scholarly publishing ventures undertaken in the history of science. The Collected Papers of Albert Einstein provides the first complete picture of Einstein’s massive written legacy.

Prof. Diana Buchwald addressing crowd in EPP conference room

DiscoTech, short for "discover Caltech", hosted by Caltech's Admissions group, took place three weeks into Spring Term on April 19th. Designed to welcome admitted students to their possible future home, DiscoTech provides an opportunity for Caltech to showcase how curiosity, creativity, resiliency, and collaboration come to life every day and lead to new discoveries. About 550+ admitted students and guests were on campus that day.

Part of the DiscoTech program includes breakout sessions where prospective first year students and their families can explore labs and projects on campus. The Einstein Papers Project was selected as a site for one of the breakouts. Pictured here, Prof. Diana Buchwald, EPP Director, is seen giving a talk about Einstein and our work at the EPP.
