Our Traveling Exhibition Project
If you visit Museums of Science around the world you would most probably find a few inventions attributed to Archimedes, the Classical Genius of Hellenistic times - alerting us that, 2,200 years after his death, Archimedes’ science is still alive.
But despite all his acclaim we wondered why there were- always “just a few” - So scant a sample for such a famous man!?... Armed with our successes of 4 ancient technology exhibitions, this being our 5th, we begun probing for answers.
So in 2013 begun our journey for the ultimate ARCHIMEDES TECHNOLOGY EXHIBITION bringing to life Science and the great Archimedes machines of his times.
We soon realized that his science had been lost, only rediscovered and partially reconstructed 1,500 years after his death. What an intriguing detective story! What a great subject for an exhibition full of surprises and discoveries.
In unraveling the story we were “lucky” to receive unwitting assistance from the Renaissance Masters Da Vinci and Galileo.
As a grand-finale we propose a modern day application for the technical minded; a fully automated green energy farm.
ARCHIMEDES RENT EXIHIBITION
Using Archimedes’ technology and renewable sources of energy with a biomass-fuel back-up. Parabolic mirror combined with the Stirling Engine are the most efficient solar energy harvester yet invented, whose scientific principles goes back to Archimedes times.
When in March 2015, we presented our premiere Archimede exhibition of over 55 exhibits in the city of Siracusa, Archimedes birth place (Sicily, Italy), even the local authorities and academics were surprised to learn how much Archimedes had done and how relevant it is still today!
But our project is to export the exhibition everywhere. This is why we are available to rent all our copies of Archimedes' inventions, all the machines we have built piece by piece, all the interactive devices. Through the rental, in fact, all associations, museums, institutions can set up the Archimedes exhibition and show everyone his inventions.
