Hanoi (VNA) — People cannot imagine a world without computers, but not many of them know who invented the computer.

They will get the answer at an interactive exhibition that introduces German inventions across scientific disciplines, to be held at the Vietnamese - German Centre in early March.

The exhibition, entitled Inventions from Germany, will showcase items, games, videos and experiments to give visitors an insight into historical discoveries and pioneering innovations from Germany.

Be it the computer, telephone, television and X-ray technology or the automobile, it is impossible to imagine our everyday life today without these groundbreaking German inventions.

Intriguing quotes by famous personalities serve as an introduction to the seven themes of computer science, energy, mobility and communication, as well as medicine, optics and materials.

Each category has five to six exhibits that are explained with English text and illustrative pictures.

There are interactive elements that encourage people to have a go. Films and audio stations round off the package.

Visitors can find information about study and research in Germany in the central area.

The exhibition will be held from March 2 to 10 from 9am to 6pm, at No1 Dai Co Viet Street, Hanoi.

It will move to Ho Chi Minh City from March 17 to 24, with the same opening hours, at IDECAF, 28 Le Thanh Ton Street, District 1.

Students in the 14 to 25 age group are invited to visit the exhibition. They will be guided by Vietnamese-speaking volunteers and accompanied while doing experiments.-VNA
