Trangawaewae - The Year 7 Exhibition

The feedback was conclusive; what an excellent array of projects and deeply explored ideas. After a term of exploring new technologies and resources, it was clear students enjoyed putting their new skills into practise for our final exhibition. I particularly enjoyed the cardboard constructions, animation and Makey Makeys. The learning certainly is not over, in-fact this is just the beginning and students are already looking at ways to improve their design and presentation for next time.
