This film about Joseph Priestley and his life in Pennsylvania was created by chemistry students at Mifflinburg Area High School in partnership with the Central Susquehanna Intermediate Unit television station and the Joseph Priestley House. The film follows two teenagers as they explore the Joseph Priestley House in Northumberland, Pennsylvania while they learn about his life and scientific discoveries. This includes details about early 19th century life, footage of Priestley's restored laboratory attached to the house, and recreations of some of his most famous discoveries and experiments.
