On the 25th October Tristan, Jai, Blake and I were part of the Technology Challenge team.  The BP Technology day was held at MoTec.  Most of the schools in our area were there too.  The scenario was a rescue mission, we had to make parachutes, catapults, boats and a wind powered winch system to get medicine to Emmett. Emmett was stuck in a sinkhole on Takaka hill and we had to get his medicine to him. Points were deducted if we spilt the medicine. We received an award for our wind powered boat. We managed to sail it over a four metre trough in 12 seconds. Our team worked really well together. We liked using our problem solving skills.
