1001 Inventions uncovers one thousand years of scientific, technological and cultural achievements from Muslim Civilisations from the 7th century onwards, and how those contributions helped create the foundations of our modern world. Through its award-winning educational programmes, books, exhibitions and films, 1001 Inventions showcases the contributions of men and women of different faiths and cultures in a civilisation that spread from Spain to China.

The website includes a free downloadable Teachers’ Pack with nine lessons for secondary Science teaching. There is also a book and a set of educational posters available to buy. The inventions are grouped into thematic areas around: home, school, market, hospital, town, world and universe, with a short explanation introducing each section.
