Results of the Renaissance & the Scientific Revolution
The Renaissance and the Scientific
Revolution brought big changes to
Europe. European countries began to
compete with one another for natural
resources and trade power. They also
wanted spices, gold, and other riches.
Improved shipbuilding and
navigational tools allowed for long sea
voyages.
Exploration would give these countries
what they needed to stay in power or
become powerful.
