Throughout the first term of this year (2018-2019), we start with our new chemistry teacher name Ellie. Ellie had introduced us to many new subjects and many new Labs. These are the subject that Ellie had taught us: scientific method, density, moles number, build an atom, electron configuration, ion, and many more specific and helpful subjects. And this is labs that we had work on so far: flame test, density lab, measurement lab, and gum lab. Before we start any lab or experiment we need to prepare our-self to wear cloth that protects us from chemicals or any accident while doing the experiment. Moreover, we also need to wear goggle for eyes protection and sneaker for protecting our feet. One of my favorite labs was the flame test, this test allowed me to see news colorful of flame that I never saw before that was interesting and gorgeous. By doing this lab, I understand why do we see colors in the flame? And many interesting new substances.
March 4th, I went to three villages in Kompong to help to survey villager for Statistic Exploration. I was volunteered to go because I want to get new experiences plus, those village located near my hometown. In the survey, they include questions that asking about there personal daily life feature problems. The questions also include about, nutrition, and education in families. After I finish all of the surveys, I learned so many things from the survey and the community problems. In three communities, most of the villagers don’t have access to clean toilet, electricity, health care and education as a normal community in Cambodia.
On the 9th of January 2018, me and others Liger students when to Metro Clinic to help Khmer Sight Foundation. This is my third mission with this foundation, this mission is a bit different from other mission. For this term, we work at the clinic and not work in communities like before. Working in the clinic, make me gain more knowledge of the building. I get to know the eye screening room, the surgery room, and more. We work for one whole day with doctors and patients. Patients start to come to the clinic in morning but doctors start to work at 8 am, so they have to wait to two to three hours. After every patient checks, we got back to school around 4 pm.
On the 3rd, March 2018 I when to Maker Faire event that located in Olympic Stadium. When I arrived at Olympic Stadium I saw many booths, every booth also spacial and interested. I like going with my friends to booths that have game and fun category. I went to booths that have games to play because they have prizes. Through those games, I learn so many things from companies and organization. For me, I think games are fun to learn and earn prizes. The biggest companies that involve with Maker Faire this year are Coca-Cola and Smart. Coca-Cola, as you know it’s a soda drink company, Smart is a phone service Company.
