Electricity in Cambodia

 

It is my privilege to be in this exploration. I have learned a lot about how electricity is generated. I have been studying and researching a lot and put a lot of effort into making an article. The teacher has been assigning me to do the Windpower section and I was writing about the future of the Wind Power in Cambodia, I was disappointed because I didn’t try my best to do my work. However, the teacher said ok, then I move to write another article about the Importation of Electricity in Cambodia. I am so proud of my work through the improvement of my writing with my teammate and I say to my self, You have tried your best. Throughout writing about the article, I feel so sad to my country, even though I try my best to do my work but when I do the research  I saw that the development of Cambodia is not fast enough to reach as equal as the neighbouring country like Vietnam, Thailand, Laos. after the Khmer Rouge, these 40 years, we still didn’t get recover and produce enough of our electricity, perhaps it’s because of the fate that the country has to face this challenge. So far we import about 15% of electricity from the neighbouring country (Laos, Vietnam, Thailand etc).  Even though the country is not recovering yet, but I’m still feeling good about my country as this small nation will improve the electricity to the cleaner one such as renewable energy. However, In the future, I hope that Cambodia will be able to produce enough electricity for the whole country.

Multimedia and Technology Round 5

I was assigned to work independently on something that you want to learn or something that you want to improve. I was working on Adobe After Effect cc which was my first time doing it. I mainly focus on transitions to the picture but it’s really challenging for me to do all of these things because it’s my first time. I was looking at the video on youtube of how they were doing transition on Instagram. It was really really really cool, so I think in my mind why don’t I try to do it too. One more thing that takes my interest in this learning course is because I want to try something new since I haven’t touched a lot of technology software, so I thought why don’t I make this as my challenge. For the first time, I try to search up for the internet on the basic tutorial on how to use Adobe After Effect cc. It took me so bad to learn since they have a lot of different type of computer so I try to search and search and search but it doesn’t work out for my computer. The program was different, the way they function is different. So I decided to ask someone who is experienced with it. I finally found someone who I asked, she’s one of my friends, Mariya. She helped me with the basics of how to do the transitions. It’s very thankful for her to help and if without her I would go and stress out. Throughout the process of learning, I really like them even though it’s a little hard to find the source to learn the tutorial but it goes really smooth sometimes I learn it my self and sometimes I ask my friend to help me. Throughout the learning process, I’ve had learned a lot of things. About the transition like scale, position, anchor point, rotation and subtitle and other basic things that you need to know before you make a video in transition after effect.

How I Changed Cambodia

 

Changing Cambodia is really hard for me. If you go through the time periods of Cambodia you will see many wars. It has never been developed to be a very good country for a long time. Right now Cambodia is a developing country. Poverty, trash, and bad environment happened a lot in Cambodia. Throughout this year I have participated in a lot of programs and activities but the main thing that I have done to help Cambodia is attending the Khmer Sight Program, making compost and reducing plastic, and making a geography book.

Khmer Sight Foundation

This was my first time participating in Khmer sight foundation of helping people who have problems with their eyes. I was one of the six students who joined that trip. I was very nervous when I met and talked with them but when I met them I was confident and brave. I was the one who tested the eyes of people and I also walked people who have eye problem to meet the doctor. This program is very good. It can help poor people in the rural area and it makes the community better in a very good way. In the future, if there is an organization like this I will volunteer it again.

 

Making Compost

This is also my first time making compost, it was very hard to make. The goal of making this is for reducing the waste in the kitchen, it is also good for growing plant. I hope that I will inspire a lot of Khmer people who are using the fertilizer to use compost instead. And I also want people to reduce waste in the kitchen at Liger. If all Cambodian do it I think in Phnom Penh will reducing more trash than now a day.

 

Making Geography book

 

Making a book is one of the hardest things to do in my whole life. We need a lot of hard work and determination. We need to check the grammar, check the source, the vocabulary, and more. In my opinion, this is the first Cambodian Geography book of its kind. I research about Stung Treng province and it was really hard for me. Because it’s the province that I have no idea of where this province is but I got it done. I hope people will be inspired by this book and I want more writers in Cambodia to start writing a book like this one. Also, this will be one of the good sources of government student who learn about Cambodia.

 

Math Round 5

 Math this round we focus on the rates and a little introduction of the pre-algebra.  One of the most challenging parts of this round is to solve a problem in the rate problem. I want to share this with you so that if you have any problem with it this strategy can help you. so that problem is some things like this It takes 15 minutes for 5 people to pain 3 wall. How long will it takes for 5 people to paint 5 walls? It’s just driving me so crazy just to solve this problem. However, I did it. Anyway, let’s get started.  the first step you need to find is you want to find if you need to know how much does it need for 5 people to paint 1 wall. The way you need to do is take 15 divided by 3 so it 5. That means it takes 5 minutes for 5 people to paint 1 wall. and then you want to find how much does it take for 1 people to paint 1 wall. which you take. 5 times 5 which equal 25. then we know that it takes 25 minutes for 1 people to paint 1 wall. then you need to find how long does it takes for 1 people to paint 5 walls. so we take 25 times 5 which equates to 125 . after that we want to find 5 people to paint 5 walls which we take 125 and divided by 5 which make the value back to 25 minutes. The answer is it takes 25 minutes for 5 people to paint 5 walls. 

Sees follow step by step and you will find the answer.

 

Human of Cambodia (HoC)

    A project that was inspired by the Human of New York.  I was one of the other students who joined this project. It’s called The Human of Cambodia.  We go around and interview people to ask them about a piece of their life story. To let people understand the different perspective of different people. We want to get all the people together we want to tell them that we are the same we live in the same world. We want to end discrimination. Some people are old, some are young, some was poor some was rich, some were in another community where not a lot of people like them. Some was living in a horrible life. Some was living under the heated of the sun. And what they want is the same things. Happiness, Harmony, Money, Love and a better world. Where there is no discrimination, where there are people who show empathy.  This is Human of Cambodia. we also created a blog for the story of people. if you want to check out click here.

English Literacy Round 4

            During this round, our theme is Happiness we have read poems and articles about happiness and our main question is Can money buy happiness? Some articles talking about money and happiness some says, money can not buy happiness, some say money can actually buy happiness if you spend it in the right way like giving it to homeless people. We read some poem as I mentioned earlier.  The poem was mostly about happiness also like I wander lonely as a cloud, and Storm. Those are a great poem but it’s a little bit hard for me as an English learner and these poems were written a long time ago so it has some classic word that I might not understand.  Anyway, we were asked to write an essay about how to essay.  and here is my essay. I hoped you enjoy it.

How to be happy when you are lonely

 

Have you ever feel that you are happy? Or Have you ever feel that you are happy while you are lonely? Happiness is like a magical thing that we as human have. Human is not always happy and sometimes they feel sad or angry or even they feel lonely. I am the person who experiences a lot of loneliness and what I found out is that when I am lonely I am happier. Some people also have that feeling while some people think that being lonely is being sorted of sad and angry. If you want to be happy when you are lonely then this is the right place for you.

  1. List your hobbies. After you list, your hobbies do your hobbies. This is actually what I always do when I was lonely. According to Glamour Magazine published in 23   2010 by Sarah Jio a Glamour Magazine editor state that “Hobbies can boost your health and Happiness”. Doing your hobby can make you happy. And it is the way that can express who you are. When you are doing things that you want to do like your hobby. It can actually make you happy. You should start doing your hobbies now before it too late.
  2. Reading is another way of making you happy. Some people love reading different genre and what you should do is that you should start finding what kind of genre you like and making you happy. Did you know that reading making your knowledge better with writing and vocabulary? You should try to read at least 1 hours a day.
  3. Think of a happy scenario in your life. It makes a scene that sometimes you just think of a happy moment and you just laugh or you feel enjoying it. Do you know that when you think of that sometimes you just laugh without realizing it? When people ask you. you would be like “I don’t know. I just find it funny.
  4. Listen to music is also a good way to be happy. Again it’s like reading you need to pick a genre for your self. Music plays a major part in your emotion. so be careful with the music that can actually affect your emotion into sad or scary.

These are the things that you should do when you are lonely. And there’re many more things that you can do but all of these things that you could do when you’re lonely.

STEM Round 4

 This round we started with a little introduction about physics. We learn about motion velocity, Force, friction and gravity. It is really fun learning physics since it is one of my favorite essential. We did some activity and since the start of the round we learn the lesson about Acid and base which basically talking about the different between acid and base. we did an experiment about the Acid and base. To test that we came up with seven item to test about their acid and what color will it change.

and here is the step and the result that we do on the experiment.

 Acid and Base test

Students will put into three groups for this experiment.

 

Material:

Cups

Red carbage solution as an indicator

 

  1. Lemon juice
  2. Vinegar
  3. Sprite
  4. Water
  5. Toothpaste and water solution
  6. Baking soda and water solution
  7. Bleach.

Step 1

Add 20 ml of each solution to a each cup

Step 2

Pour indicator solution to each solution cup

( Take note of the color change in every cups )

Step 3  Acid vs Base

  • Take Lemon juice cup ( already mixed with indicator) and Pour it in the bleach cup ( Take note of the reaction )
  • Take baking soda and water solution and pour it in the vinegar   ( Take note of the reaction )
  • Take Sprite and pour slowly into the toothpaste solution ( take note of the reaction )

 

bleach: the color is not change

Lemon: Red kind of pink

Tooth: lighter

water: purple

sprite: pink

vinegar: pink

baking soda: green+belu

Bleach+lemon: it still has the bleach color and then it turns to milk color. (hot)

Water+baking+vine: purple

baking+vine: purple

Tooth+prite= bright and milky pink

In the experiment is that the water solution with the toothpaste change alittle bit to light greenish but the color change just very little becuase since the water toothpast solution is sort of green. the bleech doesn’t change any the color . lemon is red kind of pink and the water itself is light purple. for the sprite it kind of pink and vinigar is sort of pink too but is it darker then sprite. after that we mixed baking soda solution is green bluish. when bleech mixed with lemon it is become so milky and it is also hot. and the baking soda with vinegar its become purple and when toothpaste with sprite it’s become milky pink. and when the water with baking soda and with vinegar it is still purple.

 

Community Traveling Theater

Community Traveling Theater is one of my favorite exploration that I ever been participate on. The project is mainly focus on performance in the rural area around Cambodia. Where we do educational plays, magic trick, dancing and singing.  I was one of the setup team and I set up the theater and prepare things for the performer.  and I am also a part of communicator which we contact the place in the area that we are planning to go.  We been to to provinces which is Takeo and Kam Pot province.  We also did something like a filming movie night for the kids in school too.

My first day when we go to Takeo , we perform the show for the kids in the Primary school it wasn’t that successful actually but we did it. When we perform the kids are just kind of distracted and not paying attention and they make noise. So we just think of where will we go for the next trip to Kam Pot and think that the High schools student might be interested in that and they are kind of more mature to pay attention to the performer better. and it did work out that we . The plays is cools, the singing is cool, the magic is super super super cooler then I thought it would be. 

and overall it was a very good experience.

Here are some picture that we take during the trip

Multimedia and Technology Round 4

        This round we mainly focus on Python programming and the lesson that we learned this round is Function, List and Dictionary. For the List and Dictionary is quite similar  but they are not the same . The difference is that Dictionary don’t tell the index and it use this sign to function({ }) and for the list the robot can defined the index of it but it and it use this sign to function ([ ]). About the function is that we learn how to make the function is that we just put

def + name of the function + ()

and then we put what we want to the function to do. After we learn about that we also did some activity in the code club that the teacher introduce us to use and here are some screen shot of my code club activity. 

this project is basically we trying to type the code and then it will print the secret code for us.

and this project is basically we give the name of the list of the person or thing we put in the list and they are trying to choose the team and the member of the team for us.

and for this want it is called the rock paper scissor game which we have player and the computer and it is the same as rock paper and scissor game.
