Our trip to Furnware

What a great time we had at Furnware.  It was interesting to see the long history it has had in the Hawkes Bay and where the furniture is exported to.  We had a great tour of the factory and learnt how the furniture was made.  We then designed our own table in groups and we are now holding thumbs that one of Room 13's designs has won the table to made for our room.  Overall we all had a great time.

Kiwi DIY it's in our DNA
The task was to create a balloon car using recycled materials.  We first drew our designs, then put them all together.  We ran several tests on them and then changed parts of our car in order to build a car that went the furthest and fastest.  We raced them and then evaluated our design.  We also looked briefly at the science behind our cars - Newton's 3rd law of motion, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
