Mrs. Valenzuela 5th grade Nikola Tesla was born on July 10, 1856 in Smiljin Croatia. He was educated in Realschule, Karlstadt and The University of Prague Polytechnic Institute. Nikola Tesla was an engineer and an inventor. He was best known for inventing the alternating current motor. He died Jan. 7, 1943 in his hotel, The NewYorker, in New York City. Nikola Tesla's Life Attitude: Enthusiasm Tesla invented the AC motor and saved the U.S. billions of dollars. The AC motor can reach a long distance while as a DC motor reaches a much smaller distance of 2 miles. He saved the U.S. billions because instead of having to build a DC motor every 2 miles you can build 2 or 3 AC motors every 100 to 200 thousand miles depending on how big the station is. So Tesla impacted society by creating a more efficient way to power lights and other electrical appliances. He was recognized for his great work in 1888.
