Description
The oldest and wisest of America's Founding Fathers, Ben Franklin is perhaps best known as a man of wit and words. But he was also dedicated to putting scientific principles to practical use. This DVD examines the ingenuity and imagination of his numerous inventions, including his crafty anticounterfeiting techniques, his unique musical instrument (glass armonica), and the world's first bifocal eyeglasses. Historians and experts also explore how Franklin's genius extended to larger institutions, as seen in such concepts as the volunteer fire department, daylight saving time, and America's first lending library.
