I feel the earth move under my feet. I feel the sky tumbling down. In reality, there are patches of plastic existing as giant islands of floating garbage called microplastics travelling around in our ocean. We invite all junior engineers to join our recycling plan to create a recycling island.

Windy Crafty

The wind is a great resource we have in Aotearoa. It is reusable energy that doesn't bring too much pollution when generating power. In my travelling time, I once found a chocolate and cocoa factory, using wind energy from the windmill. Today, we explore the possibility of enhancing our art or sculpture by the wind. Wouldn't it be nice to see your drawing fly high?

Under the sea

Seventy per cent of the Earth’s surface is below the ocean. Yet 95 per cent of it remains unexplored to the human eye. Bring on your imagination! Perhaps we could create a submarine to explore the mystery together?  My dolphin friends will lead me the way. Look, there is a whale shark!
