Kahikatea Team have had a trip to MOTAT. The exciting thing was the Laser Maze. The interesting site was making the marble tracks. Once we started, everyone sprinted to the table of equipment. Frosiking through the widgets and gadgets. We all had to make a track on boards that were covered in holes large enough for the tiny sticks to help create the marble track.The next thing was a TRAM RIDE!! The elderly tram driver was an experienced driver. He told us about the history of MOTAT's Trams and how the engineering of the trams work. He had shown us a couple of the joysticks to operate the tram. The seats were very bouncy and comfortable. I found that at MOTAT was EXTREMELY fun. Especially the CHALLENGE ZONE. There were hand batteries, and musical pipes, AND an Infinity Mirror. I enjoyed our trip to Auckland, to MOTAT. On the way back to school the Waipa River had FLOODED!!! I think that if you like history and old day inventions. Come along to MOTAT!!!!
