            Rules About Electricity:
         • Do not experiment with the electricity from
         wall plugs. It is dangerous and can kill you.
         • Never work with appliances or lights that are
         plugged into the wall.
         • Stay away from downed power lines and
         electric company substations.
         • Tell an adult when you see a broken wire from
         a house or a utility pole. -

       In 1752, Benjamin Franklin paved
       the way for an understanding of
       electricity with his famous
       experiments. He revealed that
       lightning was electricity. In the
       early 1800s, Michael Farady
       added to this knowledge by
       discovering the relationship
       between magnetism and
       electricity. -

       In the mid - 1800s, Joseph Henry
       revealed the nature of
       electromagnetic induction. The
       foundation was then laid for a score
       of inventions, from the light bulb by
       Thomas Edison to the telegraph by
       Samuel Morse. Today, we continue
       to add to the list of inventions that
       depend on electricity. -
