Te Wā Heke Festival

In Room 9 we have BLASTED OFF into Term 2! We’ve started with our rocket challenge and are busy learning all about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) and how to make our rockets fly!

To help us learn more about STEM, we went along to the Te Wā Heke festival in Lower Hutt. Some our favourite activities were eating crickets and scorpions (yes they were real!), light experiments, launching rockets, seeing different robots and how they can be controlled, playing with kinesthetic sand, and using virtual goggles! We had THE BEST day!
