Every Tuesday morning, the year 7's walk down to Tamaki Collage for tech. When we arrive we head off to the class we are assinged to go.
For the year 7's there are 3 different activities. They're Electronics, Hard Materials (wood work) and last but not least Food. For the last couple of weeks I have been going to food but recently we have switched to another category. Food went to Electronics. Electronics went to Hard materials and Hard materials went to Food.
When we arrived at EP1 which is the electronics class we put down all the chairs and sit down. The first thing that I noticed was that it smelt like a YMCA. After that Mr Maholtra told us to introduce ourselves by saying what our first names our, if we have any brothers and sisters in TC (tamaki college)we also had to say what we would like to learn at electronics. I said “that over the years I would like to learn to make a laptop”.
When the whole class had finished introduced themselves we all had to write down 10 rules and sign. We also had a 5 minute break. When that was over Mr Maholtra showed us some games that he made and all the parts to it.
I learnt alot that day and even though we mostly sat down it was really fun and we also got to see all of Mr Malhotra's creations. I can't wait till next Tuesday when we use soldering irons.
