A New Revolution

Lecture 3: A New Revolution

The Royal Institution’s very own Michael Faraday demonstrated the world’s first motor in 1822 – now we are surrounded by devices that spin, swing and saw. Engineers often find themselves in a cycle of prototyping, testing and perfecting, so can we use these principles to turn a motor into something world changing? Danielle will use her imagination and the new rules of invention to move things in ways that Faraday could only have dreamed of.
