An Electrifying Social Event on Feb. 26….
SWINY’s annual gathering celebrates February-born innovator Alessandro Volta
Cell phones, laptops, smoke alarms, flashlights, volt-meters….you get the idea. In 1800, Volta—a physicist fascinated with atmospheric electricity—invented the very first battery, i.e., the voltaic pile.
Enjoy the evening with SWINY friends and colleagues at the Science Writers in New York Annual Party
