Faraday 2012 Poster presents:

5th Annual
Faraday's Holiday Event

Michael Faraday began a tradition of giving a lecture for children on Christmas Eve in 1827. He would show the children various experiments that he had been working on during the year at a time when education for young people was scarce. Many of the basic discoveries that Faraday made, make the technologies we use today possible.
