This is a google presentation that my partner Charday and I have created which links with our inquiry unit . This presentation also has a number of useless products that were invented but haven't yet it the market industries.
First of all what is a Hologram? A hologram is a three dimensional shape that is shown with the help of light beams that are from a laser which forms a selected or specific image.
We need holograms because it can increase our access to seeing our relatives or friends who are overseas which can benefit families who can’t afford the trip to see them. This is important to be aware of because it can not only be a new edition of present holograms that we use now but it can be a huge step in the market industry with many overseas buyers.
This piece of technology has been invented to make replicas of deceased music artists (e.g such as Michael Jackson and 2pac) to carry on their legendary songs and music. It has also been developed to holograph movie characters such as the ones that were featured in Star Wars and etc.
There are many ways why holograms are used and here are some reasons why:
Holograms can help to shape our community:
Like in some schools such as Uni or Med school you can use holograms for bringing in surgical procedures that you can work on or study, or maybe operate on a patient who could be halfway across the world but the hologram would allow you to work on them as if they were in the actual room.
I think that if our schools or our community had this type of technology it could shape a new opening of things that we can improve on or even create to help make our lives easier. Companies probably will catch onto this idea and would like to sell this product world wide for hospitals, police departments, schools, universities, and etc. This is the most likely chance of holograms being embraced into modern society.
Our community and our schools need this type of technology to help enhance our way of life and make it easier for us. Holograms could likely be the new thing for our community and schools. Why is this important to take a notice of? This can not only help us but it can also encourage younger kids to start working with this type of technology. I would also strongly recommend this for our community’s use.

This is a video clip showcasing my highlights and also the highlights of others who had accompanied me and some other students to the Copthorne hotel and Resort in Waitangi. I had an amazing time up in Waitangi and I hope you too are inspired by what the treaty has done.
Most of all the Treaty of Waitangi has brought us closer together because we have all developed relationships that are positive and we have also gotten to know each other a bit more as well. Nau mai Haere mai Whanau.
Cook Strait Kate :
The eyes of the sea, the soul of the wind. Kate has a determined and striving fighter within her that is committed to achieve her goal as a bright human being and as an ambitious swimmer. With agility and skill on her side she will conquer her goals and she will have more to face and at the end she will make it her own mission to accomplish any target that is set in front of her.
Determination is the key to her success. Stamina is the fuel to her victory, but ambition is her motive in all of the things that she wants to achieve. Streaming through the water with her calmness, effortlessly than how a feather falls gracefully to the ground. Driving her focus, her training, her power into the thing she loves most which is swimming.
The raw emotion that she provides, only with the strokes that she uses to swim through armies of waves and endless kicks is inspiring to many and it also must have been an honour. Smiling with triumph over the Cook Strait, Kate can now think of more goals to achieve and strive towards as well.
This here is a Descriptive piece about Kate Johns and how her accomplishments have helped her to succeed in her own ambitions as well.
This is a Google Presentation about Kate Johns who is known as the youngest female to have swam the Cook Strait. What an achievement it must have been for her. Read more to see if you can relate to what her ambitions were and how she was determined to achieve them. Who knows. Maybe you could try and swim the Cook Strait but only with proper training, commitment and determination is the main things you will need to help you on your own journey as well.

Along the Shore:
Listening to the soaring of seagulls,
as they past by they would be whispering hello.
Feeling the chill of the icy cold water
as it surrounds me with it’s familiar
the sharp crisp breeze,
Seeing the smashing waves,
Feeling the cold rocks beneath my feet.
The beauty of the horizon.
Exposure to the ocean
Leaves me feeling secure and safe
while tasting salty water among the flowing current.
Moved by the streaming crest -
the soothing vibe of the singing waves,
cradling the sleepy children beneath the moonlight.
The soft voice of the wind,
blowing through my seaweed-like hair.
Swaying branches of the coconut trees,
laughing at the dancing water,
Sprites frolicking across the shore.
Inspired by the ocean’s weaving movement,
as it indulges in harmony.

Mango Taniwha - Great White Shark:
I live in all parts of the ocean but I'm a survivor with jaws and intelligence. I swim through the endless deep blue sea with my head held up high in pride. I feel the thrill of hunting and I can almost taste my next meal. As I descend upon the sand floor I'm scanning the seaweed for prey, but I can smell the scent of my meal although my eagle like eyes are being deceived by the camouflage of my prey.
Right when I thought I wasn't going to eat tonight I caught a glimpse of a tail flick and I reacted fast, and clean. With one swipe of my tail my prey was knocked out, and just before it awoke I swiftly devoured it whole. My jet black eyes were adjusting to the sun beams streaming through the water as I was slowly swimming gracefully.
Trying to lure fish toward me thinking as if I were a friendly whale, or a fellow friend not realising that I am indeed a foe.
The sea is my home she is my mother who nurtures me through storms and calm weather, she provides me with food to eat and now I am a predator with fins of speed and jaws of death. My rough touch gives the shivering presence of death and destruction. I can hear the echoing song of a pod of whales and I feel a great urge to investigate.
I can detect a faint scent of blood as I swam through the channels like a beastly creature with a gaze of hunger and desperation I got closer toward the scent and it began to get stronger and stronger and it made me ache more and more at the thought of my food just being a tail flick away from me.
Although I can feel that I have been restrained by the distance I have to swim to get a bite out of sweet, juicy delectable flesh. Rows and rows of jagged teeth, endless strength, incredible eyesight, and a strong sense of smell. My advantages in life is what keeps me striving for more and they are my weapons against my prey.
Think of me as a predator with a brain and a thirst for survival and defending myself is my weapon against any other creature. Friend or Foe, I am determined to survive and survive I will.

Tagata o le Moana:
I noticed the beauty of the graceful sea creatures as they soared through the water like how birds would in the sky. I heard the whispering cries of the sea as she urged me to come in. I could sense the salty air as it flows through me as a gesturing aroma of home.
I caught a hint of salt water on my tongue as I drew nearer and nearer to the lapping waves, I felt the cold water send shivers down my spine as I waded knee deep through the clear crisp water. The water surrounded me like a protective shield against intruders.
Dutiful fish were swimming frantically up and down the channels looking and scavenging for food as well as avoiding predators. A lonely turtle struggles to find it’s way through a swarm of fish but somehow it senses my presence and turns to the right direction.
When I hear the splashing of fish, I think of playing children.
When I see exotic marine mammals playing I think of mischievous monkeys. When I can smell sweet, sensational aromas I think of mouth watering food. If I feel the tail flick of a fish then I think of a feather brush stroking my leg, and when I look upon a beautiful coral reef fish I think of my family. As I tasted the saltiness of the ocean water I think of the ocean as my peaceful home of tranquillity.
