On Tuesday 26th November Jim Parkin will give a talk entitled Michael Faraday – Scientific Genius
Faraday was responsible for fundamental discoveries in electrochemistry, electric and magnetic fields leading to electricity generation and motors. Much of late 19th and 20th century physics and engineering are based on his discoveries. There will be some practical demonstrations.
The starting time will be 1430 (2.30pm).

On Tuesday 17th December Leon Ferris will give a talk entitled Electric Energy, its Generation, Transmission and Use
Electric energy is what underpins our present lifestyles, but we take for granted the fact that when we flip a switch we can instantly illuminate our house, switch on the washing machine
or bring to life our computer. The talk will explain in simple terms the science and technology that enables electric power systems to operate reliably and efficiently.
