Event description

Join the Ri’s Science Presenter Dan Plane to discover the history of electricity and witness some of the earliest historical demonstrations of how electricity could be used and harnessed, developed by one of the Royal Institution’s most famous scientists Michael Faraday. This workshop will include live demonstrations, as well as the chance for students to explore hands-on some of the exciting world of electricity and power.

About the speaker

Dan Plane is a Science in Schools presenter for the Royal Institution and has worked in education for nearly 20 years. He's been a science communicator for the last 8 and his interest in all areas of science is ever growing. He especially enjoys bringing fun and excitement to the demonstrations he has been creating and performing in science centres and schools across the UK.

Dan is all about getting everyone, kids and adults alike, to explore the past, present, and future of science, and is especially proud to be a part of the rich history of science communication here at the Ri.
