New Exhibition Celebrates Golden Age of Islamic Science

The Ontario Science Centre is aiming to promote diversity with an exhibit which celebrates scientific and technological breakthroughs made during the golden age of Islamic science.

The "Sultans of Science" exhibition -- which opened Friday just in time for March break -- was last at the centre in 2009, but has since been updated to include new components.

The exhibit which covers the seventh to 17th centuries focuses on nine themes, including flight, Islamic astronomy, mathematics, art and architecture, and optical science.

Science Centre CEO Lesley Lewis says the entire exhibition helps ensure the museum appeals to visitors of all ages and cultures.
