Did you know?
A statue of Michael Faraday stands outside IET London: Savoy Place and we hold an important collection of his personal papers in the IET Archives. But why is Michael Faraday so important to the IET? After all, he died in 1867, four years before the Institution was formed.
Faraday’s journey from unqualified apprentice to the most famous scientist of his day, his work on the fundamentals of physics and electricity and his untiring efforts to promote science in society have ensured his legacy to the history of science and technology. We hope your event will spark recognition with this as you bring it to life in the heart of London, on the banks of the River Thames.
