(Year 2)Tapawera Area School
Motu is keen to develop his engineering skills and experience, so decided to enrol for a second year in the Mechanical Engineering Trades programme. He enjoys the process of making things and the fact that he can use all the machinery in the NMIT workshop, including the lathes and welding equipment. He’s looking forward to making and racing another grass kart this year, which is one of the highlights of the programme.
Motu really appreciates the help he’s been given by his tutor: “My tutor, Kevin, is really cool. He goes out of his way to help me, especially with the written work.” For Motu who comes from a small area school, meeting students from other schools has also been a real bonus.
