Philo Farnsworth was in a potato field in 1920 plowing. He was fourteen years old as a farmboy that brainstorms so many ideas. His ideas became reality when he transmitted the world's first television image. He was a scientific genius in creating an invention dealing with television. It was interesting when Philo sat at the kitchen table and drew detailed pictures of what went on in the inside, which is the motor of a train. I learned that Philo would read so many books just investigating television. The article is called, "Pictures that Fly through the Air," which stimulated him. Philo would plow because it's the best chore for thinking of ideas. I enjoyed this story because if it wasn't for Philo, television probably would have never existed. Philo is very inspiring and influential because he worked very hard. Philo was a thinking man full of great ideas. This story was well written and organized. ( )

This was a very good book. It was full of details and it walked the reader through a step by step process of Philo's invention, the tv. It wads really cool to read this book and imagine tv being invented for the first time compared to where we are today with technology. I would use this book in the classroom to show children where technology came from and how it has evolved today. ( )

This book was about Philo Farnsworth, a boy who came up with a brilliant idea as he was plowing a potato field in 1920. At the age of fourteen, he imaged the parallel rows of the potato field to “make pictures fly through the air.” Eight years later, after going through several obstacles of getting people to invest in him, he finally made his idea a reality when he transmitted the world’s first television image. Although some people may have looked at him as a magician because he’s done something that no other has done; he simply was a scientific genius. Farnsworth's idea of television was the hope to inform and bring people closer together. I personally had mixed emotions by the way this book was organized, simply because I expected a different ending. As I approached the last word of the last page, I had the mind of “where’s the rest of it.” Overall, it was a very informative book and I learned a lot about Philo Farnsworth that I didn’t know before opening this book.

The biography of Philo Farnsworth is all about his life growing up on a farm and how technology and mechanics sparked interest in his young mind. The book starts at a young age, and continues to go through the years Philo was in school, and eventually as an adult. The biography goes into great details of what Philo Farnsworth did to understand electricity and mechanics more, and what eventually gave him the idea to invent the television. 1. Philo Farnsworth grew up in a very poor family that was farmers, and his job at the farm was his first priority. 2. Philo Farnsworth was interested in mechanics and devices at a young age, and that was a large factor in the development of the television. 3. Different businessmen instead in Philo Farnsworth in inventing the television, and eventually one of them was successful. 4. Philo Farnsworth did not get credit for inventing the television first, and it took many years to get the proper recognition, one that his wife sighted for until the day she died. 5. Philo Farnsworth died at the young age of 64 from pneumonia. ( )
