WHAT: We had a go at some of the Technology at Lincoln.

SO WHAT: So when I was at Lincoln I did Textiles design, 3D design and Cooking. 
My favourite rotation was Textiles design because we made little emoji cushions.
A challenge was 3D designs because we had to make a bridge that could hold 50g of rice and it was challenging because we had to make it as long as we can and as stable as possible.
A suprise was when we were doing Textiles designs we found out a whole load of different fabrics.
NOW WHAT: I'm looking forward to doing all of this next year.
