ASTC CEO, Bud Rock on Journey To Mecca:

"I had the pleasure to see the great film Journey to Mecca: In the footsteps of Ibn Battuta at its Premiere at the Smithsonian Institution. This Giant Screen/IMAX film represents a wonderful opportunity for science and technology centers to introduce audiences to this remarkable and relatively unknown epic traveler and explorer, Ibn Battuta and also to Islamic culture. The film is set largely at the end of the Golden Age of Islam – a period of intellectual flourishing and great scientific advancement. The film and its associated Educator’s Guide includes the Astrolabe an amazing invention and the precursor to the modern computer. I  highly recommend this film." Anthony "Bud" Rock, CEO – Association of Science and Technology Centers
