Going to MOTAT with Rm 7 and Rm 8

INTRODUCTION: On Monday   i was lucky enough to go to MOTAT for the people who do not know what MOTAT is it stands for Museum Of Transport and Technology. I went with Rm 7 and Rm 8, 6 People were chosen from Rm 10 (which is my class) had to go with rm 7 and rm 8 to MOTAT. Me and my classmates went next door to rm 7 and 8 because we were chosen to go to MOTAT.

After the short assembly we all make sure if we all had our lunches and water bottles. After making sure our bus arrived. We got on the bus and then sat down, I was sitting by myself so it was kinda boring for me.  After a hour we got off the bus and we finally arrived to MOTAT.

MIDDLE: We got in the gates and we met a few people named Grace, Justin, Amber, Natalie, and Pat. Grace was basically kinda like our teacher for a day and Justin, Amber, Natalie, and Pat was Kid helpers.

First Grace took us to our meeting spot and we had a morning tea and a drink break. After eating and drinking Rm 7 and Rm 8 splitted up because they had to go to different places. Me and my classmates were picked to go with Rm 7.

Second Grace again took us to a place where it was peaceful and quiet. We saw some robots and laptops so we were clueless. Just until Grace told us that we were gonna code some robots and have robot battles, then she said after we code them we can customize them with some legos. Time passed and she finished explaining, then we had to find a partner and i ended up pairing up with my classmate called Paege. We agreed that she will do half of the coding and i do half as well.

Third we finally all finished the coding and it was time for customizing the robots and then Battle Time. Me and paege customized it and it looked like a crab so we decided to name it Crab-Zilla. We lost only 1 battle and won 1 battle sadly.

ENDING: After that we had to pack up because it was time for us to move on to exploring MOTAT. We went to this place and had games like pulling yourself up and there were slides and heaps of other things. I went on the slide and i almost fell off the slide pretty funny right haha.

Fourth we got out of the mini game station we went to this other station and we saw very old stuff like old phones and old cars. Me and my classmates tested the phones to see if it still worked and i was surprised because it still worked.

We did lots of things like going on a train ride and going to multiple stations also thank you MOTAT staff  and teachers for making this happen. I forgot to say this also we splitted up into groups and i was with Ms Lagitupu it was only just the 7 of us.
