“The most important inventions of the ancient Greeks”

30 ancient inventions, thousands of children’s eyes!

The programmable automotive puppet show, the first “smart” household appliance in history, Heron’s automatic alarm and about 30 more inventions of the ancient Greeks, spanning the period from 2000 BC to the end of the ancient Greek world, were brought back to life before the eyes of thousands of fascinated students.

This was in the context of the travelling exhibition of the “Kostas Kotsanas” Museum of Ancient Greek Technology entitled “The most important inventions of the ancient Greeks”, hosted at the “Leonidas Canellopoulos” Cultural Centre in Elefsina.

The exhibition was organized in collaboration with the Municipality of Elefsina and with our support within the scope of the annual exhibition institution we run in Elefsina in honour of the late Leonidas Canellopoulos, TITAN’s long-serving Chairman.

The aim of the exhibition was to highlight the relatively unknown aspect of the technology of ancient Greeks and give visitors the opportunity to discover the similarities between modern and ancient Greek technology.

Exhibits came with extensive audiovisual material to facilitate the understanding of the operation of mechanisms, some of which were interactive. The exhibition was divided in sections and followed all modern practices of pedagogical and museum education.

The following year the same exhibition was taken to our plant in Nea Efkarpia (Thessaloniki) and attracted more than 11,000 visitors. The overwhelming majority were students from public and private primary and secondary schools with their teachers, not only from the broader Thessaloniki region but also from Central Macedonia and other regions throughout the country.
