New Zealand's Largest Waterslide

New Zealand's largest waterslide has opened in Hanmer Springs, North Canterbury. They have named the slide Conical Thrill and believe it or not it is 13.5 meters high. 

It includes a twisting hydro slide before a drop that is really steep. It was officially opened on Friday morning and five new pools were also opened.

They gave the honor to a class from Leithfield to have the first slide. The new features took up a lot of years of planning and constructing as well as spending a lot of money for people to enjoy.

Firefighters Using Virtual Headsets

Firefighters have been using a different method to train, with virtual headsets.

They will use the headsets more as it helps them to prepare for the more challenging unsafe and complex scenarios they might go through soon.

In Australia they have made protective clothing that is able to handle the heat from the flames. It means that the firefighters can stay in a big fight of flames and take the risk of burning buildings while still being safe with the gear.

Technicraft

Today at tech I was chizzling out my pieces. I also had to check to see if my piece would fit but it ended up being to small. Luckily Mr Grundy could fix it by trimming the side and making it a tiny bit larger. I now need to just saw and chizzle out the joint from the other piece of wood and get myself a lid.
