On the occasion of the launch of 1001 Inventions Exhibition in the Science Museum in London since 21 January 2010, 1001 Inventions Ltd produced a short introductory film (5:45 mn) to present this ground breaking event.
1001 Inventions is a global educational initiative that promotes awareness of a thousand years of scientific and cultural achievements from Muslim civilisation from the 7th century onwards, and how those contributions helped build the foundations of our modern world.
The 1001 Inventions global touring exhibition and the educational products that accompany the exhibition all highlight the scientific and technological achievements made by men and women, of different faiths and cultures, that lived in Muslim civilisation.
In association with the Jameel Foundation, the 1001 Inventions Exhibition is currently at the Science Museum, London, open till 25th April 2010 (short closure from 25th Feb and 12th March 2010 inclusive).
Originally launched in the United Kingdom in March 2006, 1001 Inventions was created by the Foundation for Science, Technology and Civilisation (FSTC), a British based non-profit, non-religious and academic organization. Working with world's leading academics, 1001 Inventions engages with the public through educational media and interactive global exhibitions, in order to highlight the shared cultural and technological inheritance of humanity.
The previous exhibition graced the UK Houses of Parliament (in October 2008), which was exclusively for Ministers, Peers, MPs and parliamentary staff. In addition, the previous exhibition was displayed at the European Parliament and at the United Nations in New York.
