WHAT A BIG DAY!
We had a fabulous time at MOTAT today and learned many things about electrical, electronic and many other inventions and how they have impacted on our lives. It was great fun in the Tactile dome and we all managed to find our lumps of coal in the coalmine. The tram ride was awesome and the lesson in the classroom was excellent. We saw lots of different inventions that people have used over the last century or more to make life easier. The robot vacuum cleaner was proved to be pretty hopeless though!
We enjoyed our visit to the Telecommunications building with some of us ringing others on the old fashioned telephones.
At 3:00pm we did the countdown to the start of our Guiness World Record challenge. WOW! Everyone was amazing and we had a big audience giving us lots of encouragement.
WE DID IT! At 3:30pm we finished with a big cheer and then went inside for a celebration party. YAYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
