Last month our class walked down to the K'Nex workshop in Naas Library. When we arrived we headed upstairs. There was a man with about 8 buckets of K'Nex. We sat down at the tables. The man told us about his job as an engineer. He told us about Masdar City, an awesome-looking city in Abu Dhabi. This city is so futuristic because you travel around the city in these vehicles called POD cars. After he spoke he handed out two buckets of K'Nex to each table. We started building cars, aeroplanes, helicopters, houses-you name it really. I built the coolest car in history, wait for it....the McMobile! I built a huge seat, a steering wheel, a sturdy body and everything a K'Nex car should have. After a lot of building, of course, I had to dismantle it. It was great fun and if I had a choice I'd go again.
