The Most Exciting Trip Ever: THINK TANK


On Friday me and my class went to the Think Tank. I was the first one on the coach and I carefully climbed onto the top of the stairs because the stairs were so narrow, I thought I would fall off.

 It was very noisy because everyone was excited about the Think Tank and what cool things their might be in there. I thought there would be some electrical powered robots and when you press the buttons, they would  do lots of different poses.

The best part on the coach was when it went into a tunnel and everyone started screaming! Also when I pressed the light button on the ceiling of the coach, everyone’s light behind me flashed on. Sadly I was only one seat in front of the back !

 Once we got there it was a DREAM. There was a water fountain on both sides left and right! As I walked into my dream I could see lots of electronical gadgets with buttons and levers and all kind’s of lots of odd stuff, you would see in a museum. The instructor told us that we have to put our bags on the right trolley or we would be going home with no bag. (I did not actually listen to that part because I was astonished by the gadgets), but its a good job my friend told me what she said!

 The first part we went to was the top of the museum. It was the most best view from the whole of the museum. Just as I blinked I saw like 200 gallons of water falling from a giant bucket. It was so big that I could not believe my eyes.

 Then I approached another room where you have a little job to do. I had to put a really hard lever around and around onto a gadget. Then my other friends had to make sure the iron temperature was just right, not to cold or too hot. The final job was pushing the button really fast.

Next  it was time for lunch (finally!) I ate some  cheese sandwiches, aero bubbles and a chocolate cake bar. I shared most of my food with my friends but really I had the best part of it.

Before long  it was the end of lunch, I went to wash my hands and just as I put my hand under the tap, I could see that all of the sink was covered in water. I got so shocked that I jumped really high! I quickly put my hand under the dryer, without realising that the dryer was facing my face and that was the end of that!

Soon after we travelled to a wonderful place were there was this digger. You have to control the digger by moving the right levers. If you pick up lots of balls, you are likely to make most of the balls fall out. I got ten balls and nine fell out so I only had one.

Finally it was the part I was waiting for, THE THEATRE. The other instructor Laurence explained to us some very interesting facts:

  • Electricity always travels DOWN
  • Electricity will take the best shortcuts
  • Electricity is dangerous
  • You can very easily get an electrical shock
  • To keep safe around electricity try wearing rubber boots
  • A plasma ball is very dangerous for children

       This was the most fabulous trip ever!
