The science during the Renaissance was a slow progress, but had significant outcome. There are many important inventions that were made during this time period. These are 3 very important inventions that stood out the most. The invention of water mills, gunpowder, and printing presses. * Water mills were very important inventions during the Renaissance. They were the main source of power and energy. A water mill uses water flowing downstream to spin a wheel to activate the mechanics within the mill to create power. * Gunpowder was also a very important invention during the Renaissance. Gunpowder was originally used for fireworks. They then later used the gunpowder to help with war. The army used the gunpowder for cannons and guns because without gunpowder these things would'nt fire. * Printing presses were another important invention during the Renaissance. The printing press was a great improvement over hand-copying, which was very hard and time consuming. This meant that many more books and scripts were being made. Because of this amazing invention the printing press published the Bible. Kristeller Oskar, Paul; Trinkaus, Paul Encyclopedia of the Renaissance
