Kara MacPhee, a senior science educator with the Discovery Centre, visited Pictou Landing Elementary School Thursday with a mobile planetarium.

The students learned about the solar system by hearing MacPhee speak about the images cast on the ceiling and walls of the planetarium. The Discovery Centre is interested in finding out more from the Mi’kmaq culture about interpretations and myths surrounding the solar system. People are invited to contact the Discovery Centre to share their stories.
