History Comes to Life Issue Date: 06-29-1997

Cool Spots imageTry brushing up on American history by spending some time with one of this country's most interesting people: Benjamin Franklin. Did you know that Ben Franklin wasn't just an American Founding Father, but a scientist, inventor, musician, philosopher and publisher? And his life isn't only history, because we still use lots of his ideas and discoveries today. You can now hang out with this multitalented man at http://sln.fi.edu/franklin/rotten.html. The best part about learning history this way is that the site is interactive. You can see a short movie of his life, hear sound effects, make music and try experiments based on the same ones he did more than 200 years ago. History has never been so futuristic-or so fun!
