Did you know that in 1896 Guglielmo Marconi applied for a patent for his invention, the radio? A patent helps prevent other people from stealing an inventor’s work, research, or ideas. In the late 1800’s many scientists studied and experimented with radio waves. Marconi’s idea was to use these newly discovered radio waves to send Morse code ‘wirelessly’. Now, radio waves are used in so many ways: radio broadcasts, mobile phones, wireless computer networks, television broadcasts, remote controls, some kinds of GPS navigation, and more!
We hope that you have a creative day at school! Remember to think kind thoughts, use kind words, and do kind things. We Love You.
Bonus Fact: Marconi’s ‘wireless telegraph’ was used by the RMS Titanic as it radioed for help.
