Overview

Synopsis

Casual history buffs know well that Ben Franlkin was a man of wit and wisdom, but few realize that he was actually a brilliant scientist as well. In this installment of A&E's Modern Marvels, we get to learn how the oldest and wisest of America's founding fathers put scientific principal to practical use. With ingenuity and imagination, Franklin invented such things as the Pennsylvania stove, the lightning rod, and the world's first pair of bifocal eyeglasses. Not only that, but he also pioneered clever anti-counterfeiting techniques and created a unique musical instrument before hatching concepts that eventually yielded the volunteer fire department, Daylight Savings Time, and the modern lending library. The archetypal inventor, Franklin's creativity and perpetual enthusiasm helped to make America one of the world's leading innovators in science and technology. ~ Jason Buchanan
