Great inventions in the 1800 – 1945

2 years, 1 month ago

Hello Fellow Hethens
As a schoolproject we have to make a presentation about an invention from the 1800-1945. We have to pick two school subjects to connect it to thats not important for you guys – my cry for help goes out to you!
Have you heard of any inventions/inventors from that age? Any new ways of thinking? Any scientific ideas? Anything?
Thank you <3

I’m surprised no one has said the cotton gin, invented by Eli Whitney. It changed the textiles industry forever. Clothing would never be as it was today if not for its invention.
