    The fact that you can slow down time by moving really fast has always been pretty interesting to me.

    I successfully held back the urge to make a joke here. But I realize that many young people ask questions here so I won’t. (Yet, I did chuckle to myself.)
    You might consider using the famous photo of Einstein sticking out his tongue at a photographer. (He basically was fed up with the “paparazzi” and it was a very human reaction.)
    If your audience has basic math skills, I think it is very interesting to illustrate with some numbers just how HEAVY an object becomes as it nears the speed of light. It is an asymptotic line and I think some of Einstein’s equations are some of the most interesting illustrations of this mathematical phenomena.

    Not difficult! The guy was a very well rounded genius. Include some facts that “bring him down to earth” a bit, so to speak. Make him seem like a real person in addition to one of the 3 or 4 greatest human minds that have ever existed. This could help:

    Show a video of a nuclear bomb going off and scream about how it’s all Enstein’s fault humanity is doomed.
