2017 Extension Reflection

Spending this year in extension has been awesome. As being a year 7, I have may be given the opportunity to be in the extension group next year for my last year of Intermediate. This year, I was given the privilege to participate in the Yr 7 & 8 extension crew. We have been learning how to use MakeyMakey kits and what we can do using those particular kits. For me, these projects/tasks were very challenging. But luckily we worked in groups of about 4 or 5, so that we had other team mates there to help us. We were also given help this year by a brilliant lady called Zoe, who works at OMGTech. She works with code a lot and we were given the chance for her to show us her skills with coding. So, pretty much for this year, we have been learning and improving in coding.

Being part of this awesome group, has given me the chance to earn skills and things based around code and what code is actually used for nowadays. I have experienced difficult and easy challenge a long the way, but me and my extension group has been able to complete these tasks with the help of Zoe and Mrs Lagitupu. If you would like to learn how to code, I would recommend using coding sites such as,, and other sites as well. There are a lot of coding websites that teach you how to create game using coding blocks and how code is used.

But, overall, this year has been so helpful and amazing. It has helped me and my fellow members to improve in code and hopefully later on that will help us in our lifetime. I have enjoyed working with the other Yr 7 & 8 in the group. I hope to work with them again next year. So, now most of us know how to create our own games and how we can use code to make things easier for us.  I have loved this year and hope to be part of this again.
