- Room 13
- Greetings Earthlings! This is the Room 13 blog. We have made this blog to showcase our work to the world...Our school is in Grey Lynn, Auckland, New Zealand and it has around 320 kids. We are the oldest, so have lots of responsibilities...patrols, librarians, class leaders, monitors, technicians, band....it's so stressful being us!! Keep checking out our blog. We'll have videos, photos and examples of our work. We guarantee this blog will be out of this world.........

This week the Kowhai team had technology week. We rotated around different classes and did really interesting things. I went to room 16 first. Our project was to make snail traps for our new gardens. We could only use 30 straws, 1 plastic cup and a roll of sellotape. In the end our trap came 2nd place because we didn't use as much team work as the winning team. In room 15 we made puff mobiles. We also had very limited materials then too. We raced our little vehicles. Out of all the kids I came 12th AWESOME! In room 13 we made bird feeders it was very stressfull. Finally in room 12 we made bridges. Our one held 8kgs some others held up to 11kgs. Making bridges was probably my favourite. Technology was very skillfull and challenging. I liked working as a team and racing against time!!! Tecnology week was super duper fun. Thanks to the teachers who helped make technology week happen!
Yours Sincerely, Olivia Room 13.
