Marconi and Tesla worked separately to devise wireless radio technology that would reach around the world. Author Tim O'Shei vividly tells the stories of these two very different men. Their inventions included wireless communication equipment (including Marconi's equipment on the Titanic that was used to alert another ship to the disaster), the Tesla coil (transformer) used in today's radios and television sets, and more.
Marconi and Tesla: Pioneers of Radio Communication introduces young readers (recommended for ages 10-14) to the inventors of wireless communication through an examination of their childhood years, education, inspirations, and groundbreaking discoveries. Fun experiments with radio waves and an electromagnet are also included.
