Following Michael Faraday's Footprints
Galeano, Javier
Physics Teacher, v49 n1 p52-53 Jan 2011
Last fall I had the good fortune of receiving financial support to shoot a documentary about Michael Faraday. I took the opportunity to learn more about this great experimentalist and to visit the highlights of places in his life. In this paper, I would like to share a list and description of some of the most remarkable places in London suitable for following Michael Faraday's footprints. There are many other places in Europe of special interest for the physics teacher, and some useful guides to help us visit places as "scientific travelers," but this paper focuses on Michael Faraday and London. I have personally visited most of the places described below and found the experience to be really worthwhile.
