    The Thai alphabet

    The Thai alphabet
    The Thai alphabet was invented/created by King Ramkhamhaeng. The Thai alphabet helps people communicate ideas in writing. Before the Thai alphabet was created Thailand used writing from other places, the writing was very complicated and hard to write. The Thai alphabet is part of human ingenuity because it has given Thai people a way to write and understand, what is written easily. We still use the Thai alphabet today.

    Architecture- arches, domes etc.

    Architecture- arches, domes etc.
    Architecture was really created/discovered by Leonardo Da Vinci. Architecture is the structure of a building. Architecture is part of human ingenuity because Da Vinci's ideas helped make buildings stronger and more stable. This is significant to human ingenuity because we have developed the ideas from Da Vinci to make our buildings stronger and more stable.

    Clock

    Clock
    The clock was invented by Filippo Brunelleschi. The clock helps us keep track of time by using seconds, minutes and hours. This impacted the world because before the clock was invented they couldn't tell time accurately they would have used sun dials, position and shape of the moon and the hourglass (dusk and dawn etc.). This clock changed the world because people could tell time more exact, people could go to places on time and also helps organize our time easily.

    Printing Press Part 1

    Printing Press Part 1
    The printing press was invented by Johannes Gutenberg. The printing press is used by putting letters onto a form, then adding ink to the letters. They would add ink to the letters by using an ink pad or they had ink scrubbers rubbed on them. Then they would get the piece of paper and press it tightly to the form, which then prints out the text. (Continue to part 2)

    Printing Press Part 2

    Printing Press Part 2
    The problem that was solved (when the printing press was built) was before people couldn't read or write, books cost a lot and people couldn't get education easily. I think that the printing press impacted the world because people could spread information more efficiently, which then helped develop writing and literature. The printing press is still used today, to print newspapers, books etc., though today the technology of the printing press is much faster and more developed.

    Understanding the Foetus

    Understanding the Foetus
    The understanding of a foetus was recorded and studied by Leonardo Da Vinci. The foetus is the womb of a baby. Before the discovery/understanding of the foetus people didn't know how baby's grew in their mother and there was a lot of superstition and false beliefs about the human body. The understanding of the foetus changed the world because physicians could understand the functioning of the human body which then helped them with surgery and development on the human body.

    95 Theses Part 1

    95 Theses Part 1
    The 95 theses was written by Martin Luther. The 95 theses is a piece of writing that challenged the teachings of the Catholic Church and the authority of the pope, it contained 95 points that Martin Luther thought should be argued about. He wrote the 95 these partly because he taught that salvation and entrance to heaven was a gift of god not something that could be bought e.g. giving money to the church will get your into heaven.(Continue to part 2).

    95 Theses Part 2

    95 Theses Part 2
    Before the 95 theses was written people would do anything the church said so that they could get into heaven. It changed the world because it created Protestantism, which is the split from the roman catholic church, the 95 these changed the way people looked at the catholic church.
  • Flush Toilet Part 1

    Flush Toilet Part 1
    The flush toilet was invented by Sir John Harington (godson of Queen Elizabeth I ). Harrington invented a valve so that when it was pulled it would release water from a water closet, which would then flush the contents in the toilet into the drain. Before the flush toilet was invented people would be getting diseases because the sanitation wasn't good and people would always have to go to a public toilet where the persons waste would be left in a whole. (View next Flush toilet event).
  • Flush toilet Part 2

    Flush toilet Part 2
    The flush toilet is important because the flush toilets have improved sanitation because a clean water supply is coming in every time and people could use the toilet in there house.
  • Thermometer Part 1

    Thermometer Part 1
    The thermometer was invented by Galileo. Galileo's thermometer was made of water in a glass bulb, the level of the water changed to the temperature. Later on the thermometer was developed by Daniel Gabriel Farheniet (in 1714) which used mercury. Before people didn't know the temperature, they could only say that it was cold or hot but not the exact temperature. The thermometer was used to measure temperature. (Continue to part 2).
  • Thermometer Part 2

    Thermometer Part 2
    This changed the world because people could find out if there sick (if they have a fever), they could also find out the temperature of places which prepared people to bring things (e.g.. If the temperature was 0 degrees then people would bring jackets).
  • Telescope Part 1

    Telescope Part 1
    The telescope was invented by Hans Lippershy. The telescope is used to see objects nearer and larger. Before the telescope was invented people believed that the earth was in the middle of the solar system and also people wanted to learn more about what was out there (in space). (Continue to part 2).
  • Telescope Part 2

    Telescope Part 2
    The telescope changed the world because without the telescope we wouldn't have found out the earth was rotating around the sun, this is important because It has helped us understand why we have night and day (and many other things), we are still discovering things today by using a telescope.
  • Submarine Part 1

    Submarine Part 1
    The submarine was invented by Cornelius van Drebbel who at that time was working for the British navy, though Leonardo Davinci drew out a basic sketch of the submarine 100 years before. Drebbel's version of the submarine was a Leather covered rowboat which had oars coming out on the side of its water tight seals. Drebbel's submarine could only stay underwater for a few hours and could only go 4-5 meters deep. (Continue to part 2).
  • Submarine Part 2

    Submarine Part 2
    The problem that was solved by the submarine was before people couldn't create war underwater and people didn’t know a lot about the ocean/marine life.I think that the submarine changed the world because submarines (nowadays) are used for underwater exploration and also for military use. With the submarine we have been able to discover many things to do with marine life.
  • Circulation of Blood

    Circulation of Blood
    The circulation of blood was discovered by William Harvey. The circulation of blood brings blood around the body, the heart and blood vessels make up the circulation system. Before the discovery of blood circulation people weren't able to do blood transfusions or do surgery that involved the blood vessels properly. The discovery of blood circulation changed the world because by learning how the circulation system works people have been able to do blood transfusions, which have saved many lives.
  • Digital Calculator

    Digital Calculator
    The first digital calculator was invented by Blaise Pascal. Blaise Pascal's version of the calculator (called the Pascaline) could add and subtract numbers. The problem that the Pascaline overcame was that taxers had to add and subtract taxes that were owed and paid. The invention of the first calculator changed the world because it was the starting point in the development of computers and also helped people work faster.
