On Monday 7th of September we started Technology week. I was in Burt Munroe. We started off in room 15 by getting our topic after morning tea. In room 15 we made puff mobiles. We had 4 cheerios, 3 straws, 2 paper clips and a piece of paper. We had races and we had sections, big and small. I came 3rd place. The next day we moved to room 13 we made bird houses. We had 2 A4 papers, a piece of A4 plastic, 4 straws, 20 sheets of newspaper and a roll of tape. Our bird house bailed on the water test. On Wednesday we moved to room 12. We made bridges and all we had was a roll of tape, 50 straws, a piece of card board and 50 ice block sticks. The bridges had to hold 4 kg but I think that our bridge could have held more than 4 kg. Then the test - every one was nervous. Our group was celebrating after our bridge held 4 kg. On the last day we made snail traps in room 16. We had 30 straws,one roll of tape and 1 cup. Our groups trap name was called "Snail be gone".
