Matariki Day!

Today was matariki day, First we went to assembly and sat down under Te Kapua. After the assembly we all went back to class.  Room 9&10 sat down on the mat while Ms Parrant was calling our names  and classes that we were gonna go to. I had to go to Room 8 which is Mr Hughes.  Me and my friend’s put our bag away and sat down. Then we heard that we were about to do a challenge called “The Egg Drop” Mr Hughes showed us a video. The video was made by Mark rober, Egg drop is a challenge where you can have any number of people in the challenge. So you have to build something to protect the egg from cracking and breaking. So thats what Mark rober did. He built multiple stuff to protect the egg from cracking.

After watching the video we got up and went to our desks. Mr Hughes gave us some materials for us to build our thing to protect the egg. He gave us 2  Eggs, Plastic cups, Thread, Glue, Scissors, Streams, Balloons, and pencils with papers. We drew some designs and planned how we were gonna do our contraption. After planning and drawing it was morning tea.

After morning tea  it was building time, It was just the 4 of us so it was me, Flynn, Pesi, and Michael.  We were building our contraption. It took heaps of time for us to build , Flynn was taping the cup, Pesi was blowing the balloons, Michael was holding the cup while Flynn was taping it.


And i was giving good ideas to them,  After a loong time we all finally finished our contraption. We went outside before we did the drop challenge. Now it was the drop challenge where we drop it and pray it survives the fall. First round Mr Hughes went easy on us,  First up was Team 1 which was Piripi, Ponyamon, Tihone, and Toran.

They gave their contraption to Mr Hughes and we did a countdown from 5. 5 4 3 2 1 Boom It quite made some noise But it luckily survived. Team 2 Which is Baylee, Jayda, and Aliana.  They gave the contraption and we did a countdown again. 5 4 3 2 1 BOOM! it made a loud noise that it sounded like it cracked. But they were very lucky and theirs survived. Team 3 Which is Me Pesi, Michael, and Flynn. We gave it and did the countdown. 5 4 3 2 1 KABOOM! Me and pesi prayed that our one survived because our one wasent very that good. Our prayers has been answered and it survived. Last but not least Team 4 which is Eleni, Tumoe, Taisha, Maddie, and this other girl .

( i didnt know her name so dont mock please)  They gave  it and did the countdown 5 4 3 2 1 BOOOOM! I thought it was cracked until Mr Hughes checked and they were luckier than us. After all of the fun stuff we did we got some treats which was lolipops, and it was very fun and cool. (oh and thanks to Mr Hughes for buying the materials)

The video will be there soon!
