A historical reconstruction of the path that led to the “birth” of the electromagnetism with the key experiments by Ørsted, Amp`ere and Faraday is presented, starting from the fundamental invention of the battery by Alessandro Volta that allowed the making of those experiments.

Abstract

A historical reconstruction of the path that led to the “birth” of the electromagnetism with the key experiments by Ørsted, Amp`ere and Faraday is presented, starting from the fundamental invention of the battery by Alessandro Volta that allowed the making of those experiments. The historical path is il- lustrated in its entirety in order to fully appreciate the complexity of the case study, although its presentation constantly refers to teaching and popularization aims, being addressed mainly to teachers, students and, more in general, to the public interested in science. The object of the presentation then converged into an activity devoted to high school students (but easily adjustable to different ad- dressees, including university students), centered around the remaking of the 12 historical experiments (with variants) considered in the reconstruction that can be viewed on the YouTube platform. The didactic project finally ended with the preparation of a popular activity presented to the general public during the event of the European Researchers’ Night.
