The concept of describing something in layman's terms has come into wide use in the English speaking world. To put something in layman's terms is to describe a complex or technical issue using words and terms that the average individual (someone without professional training in the subject area) can understand, so that they may comprehend the issue to some degree.

Albert Einstein said: "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."

You don't have to complete the entire thing , it's unrealistic just tell me what you know about one of the subjects - A definition will be updated beside the fields name

Thanks :)

Albert Einstein was also not above doing the work to find out something he didn't know.

I suggest a dictionary and/or Wikipedia.
