While the year 8’s were at Tamaki College for tech, the year 7 students were having a lot of fun visiting places like India, Buckingham Palace, the Colosseum and much more.
Today some of the year 7 students used google cardboards for the first time. Google Cardboard is a virtual reality platform that was developed by google and was released in 2014. It was created by two very intelligent men whose names are David Coz and Damien Henry, they are google engineers from the Google Culture Institute in Paris.
It was incredible, we had even search a part of outer space we saw africa, the moon and millions of bright shining stars. We had even gone to the tallest building in the world that was in Dubai and we also went to Buckingham Palace and The Royal Mall which we learnt has 1,514 doors and 760 windows that have to we polished every week.
My favourite place was the deep blue sea where I saw the amazing bullshark who is said to be the most aggressive sea creature in the shark department even more aggressive than the great white, I also saw the giant whale shark it was so fun and did you know that the whale shark can grow up to 20 m in length - up to 20 tonnes.
It wasn’t the first time I had used this google product before, I use this incredible product when the year 7 & 8 extension group went to the GEGNZ which stands for (Google Education Groups In New Zealand). We went there to learn how other people use Google and if they use google apps for different purposes.
I had so much fun with the google cardboards and I hope I get to use it another time.
