Product Description

Science marches forward, led by great inventors who changed America and the world. This program focuses on inventors who revolutionized communications and those whose brilliance gave us lasers, plastic, computers, and transistors.

On the Go: British train engineer Richard Trevithick gave the world its first steam railway locomotive in 1804. By 1930, railroad was the most popular form of transportation for both people and goods. Henry Ford was a brilliant mechanic with a vision: He wanted to make cars affordable to all classes of society, not just the wealthy. In 1907, he installed a moving assembly line, which not only made autos affordable for almost everyone, but also reinvented industry.

Medical Milestones: Herbert Boyer and Stanley Cohen unlocked the hidden secrets of DNA with genetic engineering, opening the way for the development of new drugs and increased food production, as well as cloning. Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin, revolutionized medical treatment, and won the Nobel Prize in 1945. Charles Drew pioneered blood banks by developing a new way to house plasma. He was also the first African-American surgeon appointed to the American Board of Surgery.

Strong Connections - Thomas Edison still holds the record for patents – he held 1,093 patents and claimed countless inventions, including many that changed our lives: the incandescent light bulb, the phonograph, and the first movie camera. Alexander Graham Bell developed the first version of the telephone in 1876, and his invention still has people all over the world talking more than a century later. Guglielmo Marconi invented the radio, which entered America's living rooms as the primary source of entertainment early in the 20th century. His invention also saved lives on the Titanic.

Brave New World: Physicist Gordon Gould discovered lasers, which are used for such diverse purposes as buying groceries, correcting vision, and sending packages. Chemist Leo Baekeland discovered one of the most important products of the 20th century – plastic. Alan Turing invented computers, originally to crack German code during World War II. Now we use computers in nearly every facet of our lives. Leo Szilard developed the theory of chain reaction and worked with the Manhattan Project to develop the atomic bomb.
