Website Detail Page
published by the New Voyage Communications, Inc.
This web site explores the life and legacy of Nikola Tesla, an important contributor to the field of electromagnetism. Although the significance of his work is often minimized, Tesla's work formed the basis of modern alternating current power systems and wireless transmission of energy. He was the first to receive a patent for the invention of the radio, though Marconi is more often given credit for the discovery.
The web site includes interactive explorations of Tesla's key inventions and lesson plans for grades 6-12 on electric potential and conversion of electrical energy into mechanical energy. Users will also find selected articles on Tesla, timelines of electricity and radio, and a link to view selected Tesla patents.
