About

VALERIY IVANOV, ENGINEER, MODELS CREATOR

My project is dedicated to everyone who is willing to learn, to explore, to discover and especially

FOR TOMORROW’ S ENGINEERS, INVENTORS AND SCIENTISTS

The main goal of “Visual Education Project” is to attract youth to Engineering and Science.
I use an effective educational tools such as unique, hand-made working models. Presenting workable machines and mechanisms to students we can discuss basic scientific principles upon which they are built.

Currently, there is more than 100 museum-quality, functional replicas in the collection that can be divided into several themes: Medieval Water Raising Machines, Ancient and Medieval Siege Engines, Construction machines, Da Vinci Inventions, Rolling ball machines and Perpetual motion devices. The Exhibits include examples of machines from Ancient times all the way up to the Age of Industrial Revolution.

V.E.P. programs are designed to help students of all ages to understand the basics of mechanics and engineering. In presenting the mechanical process of each and every model, we touch on a variety of disciplines including Mathematics, Physics and History. I make it fun and easy for students to expand their educational horizons.
