In the past few weeks, my STEM teacher gave me and my friend to do the black snack experiment. It sounds very cool, right? But, in reality, it cooler than the way of you thinking. By the way, to do this you need the mixture of baking powder and sugar by the ration of 5:20 gram. After we have the mixture we have to put the normal sand haft of the round plate then soak it with alcohol. Next, you just need to pure the mixture that we had to create in the middle of the sand like a little hill. and after that just light around the fire on the sand and it will slowly show the reaction. This experiment was very good and don’t forget to try it.
After finish and took the test of the last book then I got the new book, it 5B book! This book has the color of the cover similar to the 5A book but a bit darker. This book has 7 chapters and 7 reviews. In total it has 160 pages. The first chapter is talk about decimals, the second talk about measures and volume, the third chapter is talk about a percentage, the fourth chapter is talk angles. The fifth chapter is talk about average and rate, the sixth chapter is talk about data analysis and the last chapter is talk about algebra. There a lot of new content in this book and I’m very ready to learn it.
I have changed and learned a lot of thing in this exploration. Before I can don’t drink a lot of water but now I did drink enough water. Like when we were on the trip we walk a lot and people start to drink more water because of keeping them hydrated.

Also, I start to help others and like nature too. Walking the wood people would get tired easily so I start to help them carry stuff such as snack and dinner and that makes me happy and also while carrying that stuff I look at the nature that gives me more positive energy.

I am an outdoor leader because now I can do a lot of activity in the forest. Like medical skill, I can help my friend when they get heard or building the bivouac when my friend gets head really bad and cannot move and this thing is for them. Like cooking food, it makes me an outdoor leader because I can cook food when I go out in the wood

It impacts Cambodia because I can use all the skill I get from the class to help other people and also share with others. Like my medical skill, I can help people when they get heat or share it with my friend or my family member.
I’m getting very excited about this round 3 because I get to learn the code that I want from a long time ago and now I get to learn it. The code that I want to learn is Python. This code is very useful to learners and also not very hard to learn. At first, I think it hard but, then it is not. We get to learn a lot of tool in python such as while loop and if statement. Print ‘nirorn’, this the code I told the computer to write my name in python. After the completed of learning it turns out to make me very very happy
Have you heard of philosophical chairs? I know that some of you that reading are don’t know about it. So philosophical chair is a kind of debate but in a very respectable way. It has a agree and disagrees side. Before the event happens all the member that attend have to do research about their topic first. Then we will have a very nice talk with a very nice speech. After all of that, we will discuss together asking the question to each other after all we will get the solution and that it.
This second round at liger I get to work in Indigenous People Exploration. There are 24 students in this exploration and 8 of them are girls. The purpose of this exploration is to create a book that contains information about each indigenous group. To get information of all indigenous group it takes a very long time but we only have 7 weeks so we decide to only do five indigenous groups and they are Jarai, Kreung, Tumpuon, Suoy, and Kachok. To gather the information we decide to go on the trip but before that, we had divided into 10 different categories such as Language, Sornom, (the special ceremonies of indigenous) Geography & Population, Education, History, Beleive Culture & Tradition, Art, Food, Folklore/Story and ancient Items. I get to do Folklore/Story with my teammate Bopha. After we get our category and we all create the question for interviewing. After all of that done we have two trips to go.
Our First trip is going to Kampong Speu to interview indigenous Suoy people. We get on the bus around 6 o’clock and arrive there around 9 o’clock. When we arrive there, we got to meet Souy people for the first time. I feel a bit nervous because they are new to me and plus I don’t get to meet a lot of indigenous people. Before we start the interview our teacher has the short introduction and after that, we all start the interview. My teammate and I get to interview the very handsome and friendly uncle. He gives me a lot of information about folklore/story. We do the interview for about 1 hour and after the interview, we have launched with and it was a very fun trip.
Our second trip the most fun trip ever because we get to go to Ratanakiri and my teacher’s plan is to go for four days. The day that we left is the first day that I ever take a very long trip. We left at 9 am and arrive at 8 pm. If I do a quick mental math it would be a ride of 11 hours. That was the very very very long trip I ever took. That pretty much thing on the first day. The second day has come and in the morning we went and get breakfast and head to interview Kachok people and we have one fun fact there. The fun fact is we are the first visit there. After spending about 2-hour interview Kachok we had gathered enough information and so we left there to have lunch and continue our journey to Tumpuon for interview them. When we arrive there they welcome us very well and event prepares all the stuff for us to take the photo for our book too. We spend about 2 and haft hour on Tumpuon. After spending the hold day interviewing had to get dinner and go to get some rest at the guest house. After a big rest in the guest house we now in the third day of the trip. The third day is similar to the day the second day because we all need to go to interviewing again so our first indigenous people today is Jarai and after we finished the interview we had moe to the last group is Kreung. In my opinion, I think that Kreung is the group that makes me laugh a lot because they have a lot of good stories and the way they act is funny. After the last interview, we head back to guess house and sleep for the last night of our trip. The last day has come and I need to have a long trip back to school. This trip is very fun I gain a lot of new experiences.
After we got back from the trip the last thing is to write all the information into google doc, check it and ready for put in the book. It a bit hard for me to do it because my brain doesn’t remember well about that the information that I had interviewed. I got more than 10 stories to write down with my partner and that would be a bit hard for me. The hardest part of it was to write down in English or Khmer than translate to the other language. After all this 6-week and now I’m in the seven-week, I had don’t all the story.
This was one of a very good class that I had done in exploration. When I attend this class I feel very good because Cambodia doesn’t have a lot of books that take about indigenous and also I get to help my country and indigenous to write down their thing in the book so it wouldn’t be lost.
I feel that I really like the periodic table. Nowadays in my stem class, we start learning about chemistry but in other to learn chemistry we need to learn about the periodic table which is the table that contains the element on earth. The periodic table has 118 elements in it and 92 of them are natural. The first person who found it was Dmitri Mendeleev the chemist teacher from Russia. He arranges it by the atomic mass. Afterword Henry Moseley arranged the new one that arranged by the atomic number. All the elements in the periodic table divide into three type which is metal, nonmetal, and metalloid. They also divide them into 7 different roles and 18 different group. This periodic table is very useful. I learn a lot of new element from it just it and a few hours. I really love this wonderful table and I also want to learn all the element from it too.
Finally, the day has come, the day that I finished my 5a math workbook. This book is a very good book of all time. I did all the review and all the work in this book. It though me a lot of new lessons and the one that I really like is geometry. It new to me and this book though me how to calculate the surface area of it how can it form and what is the net of each shape too. I feel really good when I finished this book because it helps me grow my math skill and I got to get another book.
Do you know what good photo need? basically, you have three things to know that help you to take the good photo. First, is shutter speed, shutter speed is the speed of the shutter to open and close at the amount of time. shutter speed is measured in second or a fraction of a second. A shutter speed of 1/100 means 1/100th and it less than 1 second. The less shutter speed you put, the less light you get and the photo that you trying to take of will stop at the exact time that you take. For example, you trying to take the photo of people playing spot and they run very fast so you need to put the shutter speed as low as possible or else your photo will look blurry but don’t forget that the less shutter speed you put in the less light you get. The last important thing about shutter speed I want to share is, it can help you from camera shake. Second is the aperture, Aperture is like a space that light can pass through the land of the camera. Aperture are measured in scale like the following: f/1.4, f/2, f/2.8, f/4, f/5.6, f/8,f/11, f/16, f/22. It work like this, the the less aperture you put like f/1.4 the background of your photo will be blur. So if you want to take the photo of a view of mountain or city i encourage you to use f/22 else it will be blurry. Last but not least is iso, iso is the sensitivity of your camera to light. When you put iso in your camera will get less light, but if you put to much in your photo will have a lot noise, so you need to put as low as possible. That pretty much the information that i get from my lesson. I hope i will learn more about this photo in the future.
21st September 2018 I have a job to get every single classmate to know about Photoshop CC. basically, Photoshop CC is the software for graphic design and do some photo effect on it. Before I start present I was a little bit nervous and kind of scared that there will be an issue when I presented but when I feel like normal and just keep telling the information to my classmates. I share them what I know and they practice what I share with them, they ask some good question that I forgot to mention. This teaching experience was very good cause I get to share my classmates the knowledge that I have.
