Thailand Science Festival launches 1001 Inventions

Had Yai, June 15 2018: Thailand's National Science and Technology Fair is hosting “1001 Inventions: Inspirations from the Golden Ages for a Better Future” as an anchor exhibition. The inspirational award-winning exhibition is brought to South Thailand by the Ministry of Science and Technology as part of the Science and Technology Fair organised by National Science Museum.

The exhibition aims to create awareness amongst Thai youth about the rich legacy of creativity and innovation in Muslim civilization. It is a celebration of one thousand years from the 7th century onwards, when inspirational men and women, of different faiths and cultures, built upon knowledge of ancient civilisations, making fascinating advancements in science and technology that have had a huge and often underappreciated impact on our world and helped pave the way for the European Renaissance.

The 1001 Inventions exhibition at Had Yai aims to inspire ambition in young people in Thailand to find solutions to societal challenges of today, and help build a better future for our world. The exhibition provides exciting learning opportunities inspiring the study of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) while promoting intercultural appreciation and fostering mutual understanding and social inclusion.

Initially launched at the London Science Museum in 2010, 1001 Inventions was voted “Best Touring Exhibition 2011.” It has visited more than 30 cities around the world and has earned the endorsement of organizations such as UNESCO and National Geographic.
