ALIR - Technology and Inventions

Extending the fall on ancient technology, this class will examine major inventions and technologies that produced the Renaissance, drove the Industrial Revolution and shaped the 20th Century. We'll look at inventors (i.e. DaVinci, Watt, Edison, Tesla) and how their inventions changed everyday life via new materials, new energy sources and transportation advances. The instructor will supplement Great CoursesĀ® lectures by Prof. W.B.Carlson.
