Painting Excluisive

Hello this is reporter Samantha giving you this Painting Exclusive. These holidays so far we have finished painting the shelves in the corridor outside the room and you won't even recognise them and we are soon going to have the ceiling painted and ready for carpet so remember keep on looking out for more exclusives this is Samantha wishing you a good day.


The MIND LAB

To get some inspiration for what we could do Room 3 spent a day at the MIND LAB in New Market.  We went through the doors and we saw a big word that spelt MIND as we walked a bit further we saw something dangling from the ceiling it was paper clips attached to each other like strip curtains. We walked into a room and we put our bags on the ground in a corner and outside the room was a cool mural. We met our leaders for the day Koko and Eros we walked into the room next door and we were told to pick a partner and a touch screen computer. We all were told to do some instructions. After we had made our games on SCRATCH tm we tested them and we were told to get up and try others games after a while we went and had morning tea and when we came back there were robo cars on the tables and there were controlers and Eros and Koko said we had to try to programme them to go left, right, forwards and backwards. We all were challenged but at the end we had a robo car race where we had to try to hit each others bump stop pad and the last car standing won. At  the end of the day I think we all had new Ideas for the new room.

Amazing Maker Spaces!

Maker Spaces are used globally, by hundreds of people, every day.

Our class has been designing one (obviously) with the help of our great friend - Uncle Google.

After going on a trip to 'The Mind Lab' we have a fair idea of what ours is going to look like. A great site to look at is:

Maker Space Auckland Library

Maker Spaces are a really great way to find out peoples passions and personality.
