GEGNZ student summit

Today the 11th of August the year 7 and 8 extension group had the privilege  to go to this years GEGNZ at Ormiston Junior College. The first and second session were a little boring and the last was alright. Ormiston Junior College was such a big school and had all these things that a kid would ever want in a junior and senior school. Anyway the extension group and I had split up into 2 groups and they were the p.e.n.n crew and the scratch crew. We had the chance to go to different workshops around the school and we had saw some cool rooms.

But first we had to go into this big theater that was built into the school and we had to listen to Ormiston Junior College  sing us a waiata as a welcoming gift. Then after that we had a father and daughter speak about their mind blowing adventure under the sea and they were known as the "Young Ocean Explorers." Next we had a house keeping talk and then straight after that we moved onto our first session and my group and I (scratch team) moved onto Osmos, makey-makey and lots more.

Later on when we were released from the house keeping talk the p.e.n.n group and the Scratch team headed their separate ways. The p.e.n.n group went on to show how our school does p.e.n.n for 45 minutes and as I said the scratch team went to a workshop to see what other people were talking about. So our 45 minutes was up and it was our turn to present what we did and it was a tutorial on how to use scratch and to show them how to create the game "beat the goalie". I was quite nervous at first but then half way through I was confident. It was pretty annoying because the internet connections was really bad but we got through it and finished. Sadly we didn't have enough time to finish presenting our presentation all because of technical difficulties.

It was a pretty big and a splendid day at Ormiston Junior College. Wow and that school is amazing. Anyway thanks to Tyson and Miss Va'afusuaga for helping Mrs Langitupu for making it possible for the year 7 and 8 extension group and I to go to an really exciting event. So that was the extension group and I's long day.
