* HEAD’S NOTE: ALBERT EINSTEIN, THEORY OF RELATIVITY
One hundred years ago this month, Albert Einstein delivered his General Theory of Relativity to the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. Building on the ideas of others scientists and mathematicians such as Maxwell, Lorentz, Hilbert, and his geometry teacher Minkowski, Einstein was able to show that space and time were connected through the laws of physics and as part of a fabric of the universe that encompassed “space-time." Einstein explained on a large scale how time is affected by motion and how gravity is a distortion of space-time, which opened the door for many of the twentieth century's great discoveries.
In 1991, five teachers and fifteen students in grades K-3 began classes in two basement rooms of the Saint Denis Church in Hanover, NH. Now in our 25th year, Crossroads Academy has grown to over 120 students across grades K-8 on a beautifully wooded 140-acre campus in Lyme, NH, with a state-of-the-art multipurpose building, gym and ten-thousand volume library.
