Someone named Kaldi that lived in Ethiopia, discovered the coffee plant named coffea. After feeding it to his pet goats they went crazy. Ever since then, coffee has been a lifesaver. The drink wasn't really popular in America until the Boston Tea Party of 1773. That is when they switched from tea to coffee. Now people all over the world have been drinking it.

2018 Tech Girls Superhero Challenge!
In Kahikatea all the girls got given the offer to do a Girls Tech challenge. Only 26 girls chose to do it out of 32 girls.

Mr. A said to get into groups of 3-5 and figure out a group name.

I am in a group with Eva, Aimee, Ashley and Emily and we are called EEDAA Tech.

On 16.5.2018 Pauline came into our class to talk to us about coding. (Pauline is one of the group's mentors. She came down from Auckland, to help us with our coding challenge)

After she talked to us we had to write/ draw our dream job, what we are most passionate about, how we would use computers, what strengths we would need for our dream job and where we would live.

I chose that I wanted to be a coder in Canada and that I was passionate about Gymnastics and Netball. I would need to use a laptop for coding and an android for testing the app. The strengths I would need is; use lots of detail, be good at remembering, and use the features of C.O.P.E (Curiosity, Open Mindedness, Persistence and Empathy)
