Stewart Brekke

Title: Science Educator (Retired)

Location: Downers Grove, Illinois, United States

Stewart Brekke, Retired Science Educator, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Educators for dedication, achievements, and leadership in chemistry and physics.

Dr. Brekke chose this as his profession because he always liked the idea of being an educator. Set on his path at an early age, he first earned a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Illinois in 1965 before receiving a Master of Arts at Wayne State University. Furthermore, Dr. Brekke earned a Master of Science in education from Purdue University in 1987. Knowing the importance of continued education, he earned a PhD from the International University for Graduate Studies in 2012. He became a certified teacher in the state of Illinois through Northeastern Illinois University in 1968. Dr. Brekke retired in 2001 after teaching physics and chemistry in Chicago Public Schools for nearly three decades.

In addition to his career in education, Dr. Brekke has presented scientific papers throughout the years. As recently as 2010, he published an article on archaeology. The last article to be published in archaeology occurred over 100 years ago. He was considered for a Nobel Peace Prize but as there is no category for archaeology, he did not receive that honor. However, Dr. Brekke was honored as One of the Best Teachers in America in 2000. In addition, he has been featured in numerous editions of Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Education, Who’s Who in Science and Engineering and Who’s Who in the World. Dr. Brekke has maintained professional affiliation with a variety of organizations, these include the Illinois State Academy of Science, the American Association of Physics Teachers, the American Physical Society, the Purdue Alumni Association, the Nature Conservancy and the Sierra Club.

In his field, Dr. Brekke has been able to provide and present many important scientific findings. He has had a hand in such achievements as the invention of the mathematical theory of parallelism, divergence and convergences and the invention of nuclear vibration: the determinate of nuclear barrier heights and nuclear barrier height as an irregular wave. Furthermore, Dr. Brekke has conducted research in oscillating nuclear cross sections and impact parameters making them variables as well as research in reduced mass calculation including the effects of nuclear vibrations. His work has contributed to the research in electron orbits as oscillating mechanical cloud and in the partial reconstruction of the Prometheia and in gravitational anomalies. Dr. Brekke has been an integral figure in the research in physics and chemistry literary and the development of the approximate best fit modeling teaching strategy, as well as the development of modification of Einstein Photoelectric Effect Equation. These achievements touch the surface of his contributions to the field.
