EUROPEAN INDUSTRIAL AND TECHNICAL HERITAGE YEAR
putting the spots on the roots of today's technology and industry
2015 sees the 200th anniversary of the Humphrey Davy inventing his first Miners Flame Safety or Davy Lamp. Its subsequent development was a significant factor in making coalmining safer. Gas in Coalmines is a learning initiative I developed as part of a local Heritage Project in 2008 and has been presented at several schools and community events since. It involves a digital presentation, identifying parts of the safety lamp and finally a multi-choice set of questions.
It would be great if a celebration of this invention could be included in the programme of the 2015 Industrial and Technical Heritage Year !
