Brooklyn Scouts visit NZTA Wellington Transport Operation Centre and the other to the Botanical Gardens.

At Scouts tonight we split into two groups – one going to the NZTA Wellington Transport Operation Centre and the other to the Botanical Gardens.

Scouts learnt about the management of traffic through the use of cameras on the State Highway network and were ‘impressed’ by some of the video footage showing near misses, a late night cyclist getting his jersey caught in his front wheel (resulting in a ‘forward roll’) and quite a few unexplained crashes.

The Botanical gardens provided the opportunity to find locations from basic map coordinates, identify plants and birds and consider the environmental care code.
