Changing Cambodia 2015-2016

Changing Cambodia is a really big, deep, and meaningful word. For myself no matter how big or how small the change is it still change Cambodia. When I was born I dream to change Cambodia. I think not only me who dream like that. Every Cambodian people dream to change Cambodia. Choosing real potential children that future will change Cambodia that what Liger Learning Center do. This year I think I making more changes compare to last year. So now I would like to list down what are my changes and explain.

Phnong Indigenous Minority- The biggest I’ve make in this Exploration is creating a two langue book that describe the life of Phnong people. This book is already publish and this book helps to preserve the culture and the tradition of Phnong Indigenous Minority. Inside the book there full of information about the forest, culture, tradition, believes, life style etc, of Phnong people. To be one of the members that involves with making the books I do felt really happy and proud of myself. To create a book is not an easy thing to do. You need to go and interview people to gather true information and putting all the data together. It difficult but me and the whole group can achieve it. I finally think that this power book is enough to help preserved that culture and tradition of the Phnong Indigenous Minority.

Crime in Cambodia- One of the biggest change I’ve made in this Exploration is creating the manual the laws system in Cambodia. Not every Cambodian students know about the laws system in Cambodia. If students want to learn about the law system, the court system it difficult for them because normally the information is written for adults to read. But for this manual is written by kids for students and adults. Also in this Exploration we make the video about the illegal fishing in Cambodia. This video is telling the true about how big issues now in Cambodia about the illegal fishing and what can government help to solve the problem. Generally in this Exploration the changes I’ve make just creating the manual and video that describe the laws system in Cambodia and the illegal fishing in Kep Ocean. Sharing the information to other people is increasing the other people knowledge which I called change.

Cookbook- In this Exploration the main idea is to create the cookbook for the senior students. To be in the designing team I help to design the layout of the book. This book now is only for Liger but soon if this cookbook really work our team will share it to the public. This book is full of traditional Cambodia food and foreign food. If this book is out in the public I think it will be a grateful resources for Cambodian people to use. I think working in this team make me becomes an agent that help preserving tradition food of Cambodia.

Games Around the World- This Exploration don’t really much about learning and understanding the concept. But this it one of the fun Exploration I’ve taken this year. This Exploration is about finding outdoor games from many parts of the world and especially Cambodia. The changes I made in the whole Exploration is about making the blog that share to everyone in the world. This blog helps sharing the outdoor games from one place to another. I don’t know much about outdoor games in Africa or South America but I can go into the blog and learn about it. Also I can share the tradition outdoor games of Cambodia to the world. The funniest this I did in the Exploration is about learning and playing new games from Africa, Europe, America etc,.

Entrepreneurship- This is the last Exploration for me. In this Exploration I learn many skills about how to becomes a successful entrepreneur and how to start a well working business. After learning in this Exploration I think I have the basic and I believe in myself that I can start my own small business. Even though the chili sauce business don’t really work but I think it still a good business. My main role in this Exploration is in the food development team. It is so fun and I really happy to cook the chili sauce for the team to sale. One of the change I made in this Exploration is to increasing my family economy. I used the knowledge I learn in this Exploration about added value so I tell my mom to change her business for a bit. Usually my mom sell drinks and almost every store in the high school sell drinks. But I told my mom about learning the Entrepreneurship and tell my mom to buys staffs that difference from other store and is popular. Then it work, I felt really and a really thankful to JEFF.B.

Google Science Fair- This year is my first time to join the GSF. My project is to used the steam to create electricity. As most of Liger students know this objects helps Cambodian people who’s cooking rice and boil water to charge their cell phone and have the light while cooking. Even though it this year it still the theory but I believe it will make a huge changes to Cambodian people.

Games Around the World

This is the Exploration about Games around the world. In the seventh weeks I am working on gathering different games from different countries around the world by sending google form to schools and do a online research. Our goal is to make a blog and share all the different games people play, including the rules, the number of people needed and step by step instructions.

We get learn different games from different part of the world. Every game has it uniqueness that encompass the fun, collaborate, determination, and critical thinking. I felt so happy to learn all those games and is honored to share it to other people through making a blog.

The Carbon Cycle Excursion

This is the second book that I wrote. It is about the carbon cycle. It took my partner and I about a month in order to finish the process. We start of by choosing our favorite subject to write. Fortunately, we both boiled the topic and finally decided to choose carbon cycle. In the book, we wrote a story of a character named Carbon, and it journey through the cycle. We need to draw our own pictures. After finish with all the writing and the editing, we use Blurb Book-Write as a platform to display our book. become a unit edited

Liger Senior’s Cookbook

In this class, we are working on creating a cookbook that can be use in our school. Soon, the seniors will cook their own meal and this book will be so helpful for them. 

I am working on designing the book layout. After the recipes crew finish cooking, they will send us the final recipes in a paper form, then I will put them in the book. We started the book with Blurb Bookwright. After we put the recipes in the book then I will receive the photo from the photography group. Everyday I receive about 150-200 photos. My challenge is to choose the specific and the best photos of the recipes out of 100 photos. In the book the layout is similar. There the main title, ingredients, directions, cool tips, history, nutritional facts, main photo, other photo. Each week our whole team came together and review the whole book (is the layout good or not). After 3-4 week we just find out the is really hard to print the book in Cambodia using the program Blurb Book-wright, so we decided to print our book in Adobe In-design. So, I need to transform the file into Adobe In-design. 

I am really proud of myself that I can be apart of this team with creating the amazing cookbook that would benefit me and the others.  



I really love cooking and tasting the food.

Painting Challenge

This is the painting challenge. Students were divided into groups and painting on the big painting board. Students have to includes at least two or more STEAM activities in their painting. For my team we includes technology and engineering. I felt really happy to join this events. This events giving me more skills about painting, working with my partner, thinking and creativity.

Build the boat challenge

  • Students use natural resources (sticks, leaves, rocks, no plastic) to build a boat
  • After designing and building their boats, students can compete to see which boat can float the longest or carry the heaviest weights
  • This activity is culturally relevant as boats are in important part of many peoples lives in Cambodia.

How Fast Can You Go?

On Friday in our Math class we been learning about the formula of the speed of sound and the speed of light. The speed of light is about 300,000,000 miles per second and the speed of sound is about 340.29 miles per second. So our teacher gave students a homework about finding the favorite city and the distance between the city to Phnom Penh. Then calculate the speed how much time it take to the favorite city start from Phnom Penh using the speed of sound and the speed of light. I finally choose to go to Chicago.

Now look at this:

Distance from Phnom Penh to Chicago is 13929 km. In the speed of sound we take about 11.37 hours and the speed of light we take about 0.04643 second.
