Bay of Plenty Visit- Day Two

Dame Patsy was welcomed at Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi in Whakatane this morning, where she got to grips with robotics in the Robopa, before seeing some demonstrations of the cutting edge tech being used to train nursing students. The demos at the nursing school included a very hands on resuscitation, with Dame Patsy helping out.

State of the at technology is key for Te Whare Wānanga o Awanuiārangi, whose aim is to provide education with a Maori focus. The Robopa travels around giving students the opportunity for hands-on work with robotics while the nursing school is the only one in New Zealand to give all students access to hololens technology

Later that day, Dame Patsy and Sir David had the chance to say thank you to the organisations they've visited so far at a special reception at the Mount Maunganui Lifeguard Service building. We've loaded a few shots of the guests in our image gallery
