Student Led Toolkits!

Bula Bloggers,

Today I wasn't in school... I was at New Windsor Primary with a few other attendees and presenters from my school. We went into the massive auditorium to find our that soon we will be doing the coding challenge. Joseph and Zaria went up as a representative from our school to do this challenge. We met the new Sphero and they gto to test it out and have a challenge between the other school. Then we had the teachers challenge other teachers! It was awesome. We had our morning tea and then started with the toolkits. I went to Tinkercad for session one. Tinkercad is a website which you can use to print 3d things. You have to print it in a 3d printer. Luckily Miss Fortes has got one! Tinkercad was very fun and I made a design. Something I found challenging was the angels because they kept turning and I think I need to practice a little bit  more. Now it is time for Our Group to present. We are doing animating your name using coding, which we like to call Code-tastrophy. Something I found challenging is getting it all done and also the wifi was hard to use because 200 students were using it. Unfortunately, we couldn't finish but we did get somewhere. I told everyone they have this presentation so they can do it themselves if they need help then they can visit my blog and I will post a screencastify to help them! Something I would improve on is the slides and make them a little shorter so we can finish in time. We did do half of it but didn't finish. One of the session I wanted to go to but couldn't because it was the same time as mine was Soundtrap. Fortunately, I had a couple of friends who went and they taught  me some cool jams! Today was a great day! A big thank you to all the transportation people such as : Miss Fortes, Ms Campbell and Aisea's mum! You guys are awesome! Thank you to the funny and amazing New Windsor school for planning and hosting such and awesome time. I met so many new people are learnt so much from them. On Soundtrap if you want to give it a go it's really fun! I suggest to go on piano and type in these notes z c b all together, x v n all together , n m separate. You can figure out new things. I really enjoyed this day and enjoyed meeting new people. Did you know we got to see one of the teachers who used to teach in our school!
