"Called the Son of Heaven, the Emperor of China was destined to keep harmony between Heaven and Earth. The Emperor ruled at the center of everything on Earth, while his counterpart, the Emperor of Heaven, ruled the skies. To protect his power, the Emperor only let certain officials, or people with ties to the government, study astronomy. If enemies knew how to read celestial events, they might try to overthrow the emperor."

The show includes all kinds of clever inventions and 13 hands-on stations. Call 954-467-MODS. (DF)
