1001 Inventions and MIT BLOSSOMS to Work Together

June 30, 2011

BLOSSOMS is entering a collaborative arrangement with the Foundation for Science, Technology & Civilisation, Manchester, U.K.  Their touring museumexhibition" 1001 Inventions, the Golden Age of Muslim 1001 Civilization", was recently named "Best Touring Exhibition 2011".  Professor Salim T S Al-Hassani, Chairman of the Board, and his colleagues have assembled an incomparable collection of peer-reviewed information on science and technology inventions in the Muslim world during what we in the West often call the Dark Ages. The plan is to work collaboratively in creating BLOSSOMS modules using these materials. The BLOSSOMS team plans to create new modules—for high school STEM classes—to push all BLOSSOMS goals and also to help improve cultural awareness that historically we are all dependent on each other.
