The Thessaloniki Science Center & Technology Museum, in an attempt to demonstrate the continuity of scientific knowledge, as well as its dynamics and its prospects, began creating a collection of three-dimensional representations of structures and ideas of ancient Greek scientists and Technologists.
The aim is to present developments in technology and the achievements that radically changed the lives of people at all levels: in production, consumption of food, clothing, living conditions, science and culture.
These representations are presented in the form of short films (animations), in order to understand the operation of a series of mechanisms and structures which laid the foundations for many modern technological achievements.
The collection will be enriched gradually, in order to cover a wider field of Ancient Greek Technology.
The short videoclips are in Greek language only at the moment.
