Exhibits and Artifacts Inspiring the Next Generation of Scientists

Oxford University’s History of Science Museum hosts a leading collection of scientific instruments from the Middle Ages to the nineteenth century. The museum’s virtual tours allow visitors to explore exhibits and artifacts of some of the most important scientific discoveries in science history. For example, the “Cultures in Conversationtour immerses students in precious and rare pieces of Islamic metalwork, ranging from Iran to Egypt and combining decorations and forms from very different places, including Europe and China. From stunning court fashions to intriguing astrolabes, each piece tells a story that starts and ends in a different place. In the exhibit “Alice in Typhoidland,” students explore the long history of cutting-edge research behind the typhoid vaccination and rollout. And in a two-part display of “Women and Science,” students see the work of female scientists, both past and present, who have made significant contributions in the realms of astronomy and astrophysics, even during a time when a formal scientific education was denied to women.
