Teenager Wins $400,000 For His Brilliant Video Explaining Einstein’s Theory Of Relativity


For the Breakthrough Junior Challenge (BTJC), which allows adolescents between the ages of thirteen and eighteen (13-18) to share their curiosity and passion for math and science with the world, Ryan Chester of North Royalton, Ohio, submitted a video.

The video is at the bottom.

Over 2,000 submissions came from 86 different countries for the competition. Ryan Chester succeeded in seizing the lead and brilliance after being down to one of the final fifteen (15) qualifiers.


Ryan Chester not only wrote the script himself but he also filmed, edited, and created all the visual effects and motion graphics for his video. Generally, he won $400,000, $250,000 of which will add to a scholarship, $50,000 to his best teacher Richard Nestoff and $100,000 for his school to fund a science laboratory. Cool!

I’ll let Ryan explain the extremely complicated but fantastic link between the speed of light and time dilation in his great video below, but all I can say is that you’re going to feel very, very clever after finishing the video.
