World Science Day - 9th November

For World Science Day, we looked at Michaeal Faraday’s work.

In 1780’s, a biologist cut a frog’s leg. His steel scalpel touched a brass hook which made the leg twitch. They thought it was called animal electricity.

It wasn’t the frog’s leg but the two different metals.

In 1800, Volta developed the first battery using a pile of zinc and silver discs.

Michael Faraday, a British physicist, discovered that moving a magnet near copper produced an electric current. This led him to invent the Faraday disc which was the first electrical generator.

His idea was then used to invent the first wind turbine, by Charles Brush.

We made our own little wind turbine. Wind can be used to move blades and when connected to a generator can produce electricity.

Inside the generator is a magnet, the blades spin the magnet
