Abstract

IT will be seen from Mr. Daniell's report of the meeting, held on January 12, of the Association of Science Masters in Public Schools (NATURE, January 18) that the headmaster of the Royal Naval College at Dartmouth has made himself responsible for the advocacy of a complete reversal of the historical order in teaching electricity to boys. He would begin with electricity in motion, and only incidentally throw in a little parenthetic information as to the phenomena of the electrostatic field.
