1001 Inventions and the World of Ibn al-Haytham delivers an exciting mix of highly engaging and interactive experiences including film, live shows, staged experiments, exhibits, workshops, educational materials and high-profile talks.
Science centres and museums, science festivals, schools and other educational institutions, organisers of conference, seminars and corporate events can choose to host individual elements, a combination of activities or the full range of productions. A tailored plan would serve the purposes of each organisation and host venues in order to be aligned with their resources, needs and target audiences.
