The 7th annual Great Manitou Star Party was held on beautiful
Manitoulin Island during the Perseid meteor shower in August.  PLAYLearnThink provided kids of all ages with some science fun.  On Friday, star party goers were able to control a "Mars Rover" on a model of the martian surface as well as create their own rover.
On Saturday, the public was entertained with Pierre's engaging demonstration "Exploring Space".  For more info, go to
