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 !
