This is the event that I join and work with the university students. This event is 3 days long but me I can only join for 2 days. I and Sythong is the special students that join this event only us from Liger join this event. In the workshop we are the youngest students that in this workshop. This workshop is focus on insect and especially bee and wasp.
The purpose of this event is to encourage more people especially student to learn and research more about insect. Insect is the most diverse animal on earth but there are less people that study about it. In the first day I learned a little bit about different type of insect and the expert explain deeply into wasp and bee. He taught us how to distinguish between wasp and bee. He also taught us about some of the characteristics about those insect. In the break time I do some networking with the expert and the university students. The last activity that we do is learning about catching the bee and wasp by using the net. In the next day we have a field trip to Kampong Spue to catch more bees and wasps in the wild. We divided into two groups. On the route I saw a group of bees that build the nest in the tree hole but it hard for us to get it for our sample and I also catch some wasp too. This conference is the real life research which mean we are doing research like the expert too.
A lot of Liger’s students join the Maker faire event to present about their stem project or to explore the event. This event is really good because we can share about our stem project and share the knowledge to the students that want to learn more about stem. I’m presenting on the first day about wildlife book that my group have worked on it for almost one year to create the book. I also go to explore some of the stem projects like agriculture, chemical reaction, robotic and 3D printer. It’s really fun and I learned a lot from this event. I saw many interesting projects that I never know before. This event also have a challenge that everyone can submit their STEM project. I and Visal and some of the Liger students also join this challenge. We end up in the second place and we received 200 dollars.
You changed your name but couldn’t change your face
You tied your shoes but couldn’t hide your feet
You have speed boost but couldn’t win the race
You used resistance to survive the heat
When play Skywar you fell into the void
When Play Sheep quest you always lost your sheep
Play Team Death Match you always have skills choice
You want Ultra but wait until it’s cheap
When build a house you want to use bedrock
When you are hungry you should get meat
When you play too much you always get shocked
When play with Mod you never want to cheat
Playing Minecraft you need the Internet
We hope you really enjoyed our sonnet

In the last seven weeks I have an independent Discovery that is about Adobe After Effect. I’t’s new for me but I think this program is really powerful and can help me a lot with animation and add the effect to the video. I like to learn about new technology like Adobe product.
After Effect animation
In one week I had one hour to work on math independently. This is really important for me and other Liger’s students to have time and learn independently. This type of curriculum helps to guide us for the future because we will learn to research most of the time by myself. In the independent period, I used the website call Khan academy which allow me to practice algebra word problems, linear equations, geometry and so on. This website also contains many more features, if I do the practice and I don’t know how to solve it I can watch the tutorial video. The tutorial help me to understand the unit that I’m working on but also explain me the process to solve it. Most of the time I used Khan academy to learn but sometimes I used this time, to prepare for the quiz or a project that related to math.
We are trying to help educate Cambodian’s students to learn more science. So our teacher have an idea to make the book that have the science method in there. We tried to make the book that will attract more kid to read by making fun story with science in there and attractive pictures. The book is include two languages witch are Khmer and English. I and Visal are making the book that is about buoyancy. Our book tittle call Sink or Float and in our book we have funny characters like Mr. Coconut, Mr. Rock and Mr. Ball. We decide to use the as our characters name because the kid in Cambodia they like to play the ball, so it will attract more kid to read our book.
So part of my master plan exploration I had a chance to learn a program called Blender with a teacher from ARC Hub PNH . I love designing and explored new things with technology so this expertise was a great experience for me. Due to the fact of my interest in Blender, I have obviously understood the lesson so easily with the lesson. I’m happy with what I’m doing so in the class I played an important role to help my friends to learn the task and fixed all bugs that we all struggled with. “Nothing is impossible unless with try it.”
This year I involved in an expertise that calls podcasting and this class lead by Rich that was our teacher. He taught us how general thing about what is podcast and listened to some of the podcasts that other people have done it. I learned about the different type of recording equipment that they normally use to record the sound. It’s hard to make a professional podcast especially for me that it’s new to the podcast. We learn how to record some technique that can reduce the background noise when we record. We want to create a podcast about someone biography during Khmer rouge. So in the class, we have some students research about the Khmer rouge period and for my team, we start to research and find the sound effect that might relate to the Khmer rouge period. We decided to interview some people that have a hard time with their life and the situation after Khmer rouge. We started to interview (“The name”) to more information about their situation. After we interview we gather all information then put it in our podcast. My role is the editor, so after my team does the interview I started to do some editing to the recording like taking the wrong part, combined some parts together and so on.
We are the Humans of Cambodia, a group of nine students. Our purpose is to share with people around the world about Cambodian culture and Cambodian personal story. Also, we want to attract people’s minds to read about the Cambodian people’s daily lives. In the first three weeks we learn about how to be a good photographer and a good interviewer. When we go to interview people we ask them for permission to interview and taking photos to put on our blog. We should not go behind and ask for permission because that person will feel shock, so he or she won’t let us interview. Our goal, we want that person to feel comfortable and think like we are their friend, so it is easy for us to get more interesting information. Some common questions that we ask like: What is the happiest time in your life? What is your saddest time in your life? What you like about this country? and What is your biggest challenge?.
When we come back from an interview we listen to the audio and write down the interesting part what that person said and choose the best photo. My row is a blog designer and organizer. Normally when someone finished transcript caption, check the grammar and choose the right photo I will put that into Humans of Cambodia blog.
