Pūhoro Wananga

On Tuesday 13 April a group of Awatapu students of Māori descent attended a Wānanga held at Massey University by the Pūhoro STEM Academy. The Year 11 students pictured were participating in a challenge to build a trebuchet. They explored the elastic properties of rubber bands, and projectile motion as they competed to build the most accurate device, with the best range.
