We are trying our hardest to get all our LDB action out of the way as this is our final week in which we are able to abuse the LEGO in this way.

So expect a few more editions before we shuffle of this mortal coil of a series.

This edition; shorter, different angle.

Warning: the song over the carnage says a naughty word at some point. Along with warbled screaming. Not everybody’s cup of tea 🙂

I’m sorry but this going to be one of many in this series. Thanks to my new Casio Exilim FC100 which shoots at 410 frames per second video and can go up to 1000 fps! Wa wa wee wa!

So without going in to too much details I get paid to play with Lego most of my working week.

And oversee a bunch of creative funny little kids ranging from 5 years old to probably 10.

I must say at the start of the school year I was pretty scared to be in charge of 30 Foundation years for 80 minutes. But all fears have subsided and I think they are my favourite year. I think they have the same sense of humour as me.
By the end of the school year I will have seen every Foundation Year to Grade 2 kid in my room. That’s around 300 students. I won’t be learning all their names I dare say. This is on top of my 45-odd Grade 5 students who I have for I.T. classes. I’ve had to claw my out of a few nasty situations when I was questioned why I didn’t know a certain student’s name (by the student of course).

The imagination of the stories behind what they build crack me up (and impress me)and if coming from an adult’s mouth you would lock them up in a padded cell never to see the light of day again.

I took a few pics of the Grades 3 to 5’s motorised windmills on Wednesday as they were pretty cool. Gotta be careful with putting faces in.

They have a little button attached to a programmable box which is connected by USB to the laptop. A little program is written to tell the motors to move when the button is pressed.

Here’s a vid of one doing it’s thang.

So tomorrow’s Friday thank God. I have a football game at 8am on Saturday morning about 30 minutes underground ride away. So taking  it easy tomorrow night. Then we are out  on Victoria Harbour Saturday night  (on a boat, naturally) to have some food, wine and cigars with 9 or so other staff members. We hope to be out in time for the illumination show that the skyscrapers put on around 8pm every night. A sight to behold. And video. Stay tuned for more updates on that and more. Keep it here!
