1001 Inventions is a global educational initiative that promotes awareness of the scientific and cultural achievements of Muslim Civilisation during the Middle Ages from 7th to 17th Century. In this exhibition, 1001 attempts to uncover 1,000 years of Muslim inventions in science and technology, featuring designs that helped build the foundations of our modern world. Look out for science luminaries such as engineer Al-Jazari (who invented ways to transfer the linear motion to rotary motion; the technology used in car engines today), and Fatima Al-Fihri (who established the world’s first university). The award-winning film ‘Library of Secrets’ starring Sir Ben Kingsley as Al-Jazari will take visitors on a virtual tour of the golden age of Muslim civilisation. The exhibition boasts more than 60 artefacts, which are all presented in hightech audio video.
