    There was a big leap in telecommunications between 1900-2007. Lots of things were invented e.g mobile phone. Communication is much easier and faster now. Phone calls used to sent to the operator.

    Looks amazing! Lucas said he had a great time and learnt heaps of things! The highlight for him was learning how long ago communications started.

    Communication has changed a lot since the 1900’s and things have become a lot faster since then. The prefix tele means away. The highlight of the excursion was using the phones and I learnt that you had to pick up the phone before you could dial the number.
