PRODUCT SUMMARY


Renaissance scientists paved the way for modern-day scientific thinking -- scientists didn’t just read about or discuss theories, they studied and challenged established principles and beliefs, and conducted hands-on experiments to better understand how and why things happen. Renaissance Science & Invention explores the people, ideas and inventions behind the major scientific breakthroughs in astronomy, physics, anatomy and mathematics, from the engineering that inspired Florence’s stunning cathedral dome to the laws of planetary motion. Go behind the scenes with science greats, including Galileo, Kepler and Brunelleschi, and discover how being a Renaissance scientist wasn’t an easy life -- new scientific discoveries sometimes conflicted with existing religious beliefs, causing great controversy and debate. Part of the multivolume The Renaissance for Students DVD Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.


EDITORIAL REVIEWS

"...[a] well-produced interesting series...Technical quality is outstanding, with visuals that include European location footage, maps, reenactments (with narrated quotes from Renaissance figures), and still shots of Renaissance art and architecture. Audio is clear, with a background of period music...a very good choice for any library that needs curricular materials on this era."- School Library Journal (Jan 2004)

"These programs make good use of reenactments and art prints, and helpful captions list new vocabulary words. Thoughtfully organized with a modern twist."- Booklist (Jan 1 & 15, 2004)
