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 Video Series. Teacher's Guides are included and available online.

Only available in the US.
