For this past months, we’ve been out to different tropical places around Cambodia. The purpose of doing so is to gather information about species of animals. But the primary goal of this exploration is to publish a book about different species of Cambodia animals. There also alternative ways of gathering information, such as online resources, experts, and printed resources. It took us about 6 months to publish the book. The paintings inside were originally painted by the Liger Leadership Academy students. Below is the cover of our book called, The Illustrated Guide to Wildlife of Cambodia
We are the Entreneurship group which we try to learn and create our own chili sauce business and there are four round and my group is the second round. Basicly in our group we devided into three group and they’re Marketing, Prouction and Market Research. I’m in Market Research which mean I research about packaging and customer and other stuff. Mostly I try to design logos, labels and bottle.
Project evaluation is one of the exploration that we have and right now we are evaluating on the topic: Are PBL and STEM project doabe in government school or not. We did this because to help government decision to think about the PBL and STEM should continue in government school or not. So we collaborate with another two exploration which is about STEM and PBL. We try to put this project into two school, one in Phnom Penh and another one in Kratie. So our evaluation team try to evaluate this project. We have two mentors that help us and teach us about how to evaluate and we only have 5 members in our group.
One of my mentor and my two friend asking students.
Welcome to the first sharation of this school year. My name is Niron and I am a member of the Visitor Information Palace team. If you come this way I will take you to the VIP for more information.
Our exploration has taken a shipping container and turned it into a welcome center. We hope you have a wonderful time today experiencing and learning about our projects. This is the special Exploration. We made our school model from the 3D printer and my job was to build a Teacher Apartments. There were many challenges like print the wrong size but our teacher helped us. Also I helps to design the signs like that sign there (path & car). If you continue walking you will see the mural on the wall of the VIP. I painted that mural with my other friends and with our Khmer dance teacher. Now if you want to see our school model and for more information you can go to the VIP. Thank you so much!
