Featured: 4-9-2013 Making the Modern World [History]

Making the Modern World delivers powerful stories about science and invention from the 18th century to today to explain the development and spread of modern industrial society and all its effects on the lives of people.

Making the Modern World extends the permanent landmark gallery at the Science Museum, using the Web and multimedia to go  beyond the capabilities of a static exhibition.

Features of Making the Modern World:

  • Animated scenes explore historical episodes, explain landmark discoveries, and take you to special places like the Apollo cockpit and James Watt’s workshop.

  • The story timeline runs from the scientific Enlightenment of the 18th century, through the age of coal and steam, and right to the modern world of science and skepticism.

  • Icons of Invention displays over a hundred amazing 'firsts' in the Science Museum, from the Rocket locomotive to DNA, that mark some of the biggest steps in science and invention.

  • Linked closely to the stories, the learning modules support A level and vocational students in their studies and offer a deeper understanding of a wide variety of subjects to all interested users.

  • Eight dynamic guided tours help you follow stories and paths linked across time.

  • Technology is woven into everything we touch. Explore the everyday life objects used at home, at work, and at play.

Making the Modern World is sponsored by the ISB fund of the Treasury and the Cabinet Office, and is produced in partnership with mwr and Peter Symonds College, Winchester.
