12. The Industrial Revolution: 1700 - 1900 (cc)

Five projects that date back to the Industrial Revolution. Projects include: Zoetrope - A Zoetrope is a revolving drum with slits on the side. On the inside of the drum was a flexible card with a sequence of 20 - 30 pictures. As you turned the drum and looked through the slits it appeared as if the object was moving. This was an early form of motion pictures. Morse Code - Samuel Morse developed the electromagnetic telegraph and the electronic alphabet known as Morse Code. On May 24, 1844, Morse sent his first telegraph message. Wedgewood - Josiah Wedgewood (1730 - 1795) revolutionized the production and sale of pottery. Inspired by Chinaware, Wedgewood was first made during the industrialization of factories using waterwheels to turn machines. Cotton Bags - The beginning of the Industrial Revolution was based on the cotton industry and many of the inventions were made for manufacturing and producing cotton. Pointillism - Part of the Industrial Revolution also involved a revolution of art forms. Pointillism and George Seurat were an important part of the Neo-Impressionist movement. 05/08DE/CC Closed-Captioned PI 30 min.
