    Benjamin Franklin 1706-1790


    Benjamin Franklin discovered electricity which changed the world. He was very interested in the phenomenon of electricity and in 1749 his spectacular, but very dangerous, experiment of flying a kite in a thunderstorm with a metal key attached to the string proved that lightning had an electrical discharge. From these experiments, he developed the first lightning conductor, which won him fame and recognition from scientists around the world. Franklin introduced several electrical terms that are still in use today including words such as battery, conductor, positive and negative charge.

    Can you image being with out electricity even for an hour? No fan, no light, no computer, no fridge, no TV the list will go on. So the human brain is a very important resource.

    The human race is constantly using its intelligence to bring more and more naturally occurring substances under the category of a resource.

    Improving the quality of people’s skills so that they are able to create more resources is known as human resource development.
