What’s 1001 Inventions About?

1001 Inventions: Untold Stories from a Golden Age of Innovation is an award-winning exhibition about the Golden Age of Science in Muslim Civilization and the achievements of men and women of different cultures and faiths from the Dark Ages.

The exhibition is designed to incite curiosity and inspire creativity and innovation. There will also be STEM-based learning opportunities which, according to MiSci, will inspire young people to study and pursue careers in science.

“The Golden Age of Science in Muslim Civilization was an era when people of diverse cultures, faiths and backgrounds worked for the common good. We believe that this exhibition will showcase our diversity, improve community cohesion, encourage curiosity and contribute to revitalizing Detroit.” –Dr. Dima El-Gamal of The Friends of 1001 Inventions Michigan – an active local community group whose efforts helped to bring the exhibition to Michigan and make it free to all visitors of the Michigan Science Center.
