Image: Who Was Ben Franklin?, by Dennis Brindell Fradin, John O'Brien, Nancy Harrison. Publisher: Grosset and Dunlap (February 18, 2002)Ben Franklin's Kite Experiment (1752)
-- In 1750, Franklin proposed an experiment with conductive rods being used to attract lightning to a Leyden jar, an early form of the capacitor. The experiment was supposed to be executed on the top of the spire on Christ Church in Philadelphia. Franklin conducted the experiment in June 1752. By this time, he had realized the dangers of using conductive rods and instead used a kite because the increased height allowed him to stay on the ground and because the kite was less likely to electrocute him.

Read: Who Was Ben Franklin?
-- Ben Franklin was the scientist who, with the help of a kite, discovered that lightning is electricity. He was also a statesman, an inventor, a printer, and an author-a man of such amazingly varied talents that some people claimed he had magical powers! Full of all the details kids will want to know, the true story of Benjamin Franklin is by turns sad and funny, but always honest and awe-inspiring.
