The brainchild of two students in the Stars Programme the event’s main draw was the RowBox rowing simulator.
The RowBox is a truck which unfolds to reveal four rowing machines connected to a simulation of the Karapiro course on which the world rowing championships are being held this month.
The day also featured a variety of entertainment options including performances by cultural groups and teen rock bands. For the younger kids there was face painting and a magic show.
