We all have our favourite subjects, but there are subjects that many of you agree to dislike for various of reasons. One of which is history, I am sure.

Yes, there are many kids out there who just don’t want to read and know anything that is related to history since they find it very boring. But the site in review today is not a random history site, it is about the history of inventions and the concepts behind various products of today that are commonly in use. www.1001inventions.com is a site that showcases the golden age of Arabic science, which means the site’s focus is more on the Muslim inventions.

To start with, you will find the main menu at the top, with sections like Global Events, News and Updates, but the most interesting sections are “Discover”, with random inventions and breakthroughs of the ancient past, from Assyrian, Babylonian, Chinese, Egyptian, Greek, Indian, Persian and Roman and Muslim civilisation.

In the “Initiative,” section you can read and go through even more interesting content like Arabic science, journeys and adventures, science of tricks, alchemy to chemistry, Book of Animals, cures from the east, rise of the machines, world of light, and much more.

Lastly, the section “Fun & learning”, as the title suggests, will give you a variety of educational materials that bring fun and engaging learning, all just within the reach of your mouse click. Apart from that, you can read about the books, films, online exhibits and free to download educational packs and activity guides aiming to spark your interest in science of inventions.

According to the site, 1001 Inventions is a UK-based not-for-profit and an award-winning international science and cultural heritage organisation that raises awareness of the creative golden age of Arabic Science.
