Doctor Who? No, Dr Michael Faraday!

Born on September 22 in 1791, this English scientist, was a man of extraordinary ability.

Although his biggest breakthrough was the invention of the electric motor, his endless pursuit of more knowledge resulted in even further important discoveries in electricity.

He changed the way we work and play. With magnets, wire, paper and zinc - he altered the way we live and think. His fascination with chemistry, hydrocarbons and benzene, saw him produce technology the world had never seen.

Take some time to explore his scientific career that spanned over 45 years.  He dedicated his life to widening perceptions and learning more about the world.  There is much that we can learn from his endless curiosity and tireless determination.

Why not try the following as a CLASS ACTIVITY / PROJECT to test your knowledge:

Choose a Scientist to research. You will need to address the following:

  1. Why did you choose this particular Scientist?
  2. What impressed you the most after reading their story?
  3. What impact has their discoveries made on us?
  4. Do their discoveries still make a difference in our world today?
  5. If not, why do you think that is?

Having explored the life of your chosen scientist - do you understand the challenges and risks that he/she faced? Did you explore the social as well as the technical aspects of their everyday? 

Our historical greats and their achievements are a solid foundation of proof for teachers, parents and students, that determination, hard work and commitment pay off. This provides an effective way of reinforcing work ethics and an appreciation of how others have, not only changed our world, but truly encouraged and inspired our generation.
