There was a group of 50 to 60 people from the Ministry of Education and school directors from Phnom Penh came to our school. There were five groups of students presenting. The groups were VIP(visitor information palace), English/Khmer literacy, Recruitment and Science. I was in the VIP team where two of the six students will give a tour of the school to the ministers and school heads. I gave two tours. It’s kind of hard at first because it was my first time giving a tour in Khmer. I would forget the translation for some words and don’t know how to answer some of the questions. It was also very to explain a word like Exploration in khmer because there’s no translation for it. I think I did better the second time because from what I learn from the first I did it is don’t read what you memorized from the script but say what you memorized.
I was one of the 10 ten students from Liger to be able to compete in the FLL (First Lego League) Robotics competition in Singapore. I worked with four other students to build a lego robot to complete a series of challenges under the theme of “Trash Trek”. Aside from competing using robots, we also had to present to the judges how solutions for trash problems, in addition to the presentation one of my teammates, Rathanak, and I wrote a short book about trash problems in Cambodia and some ways to help solve the issues. What I learned from the experience was robot programming, building the robots (including sensors such as, color sensor, ultrasound…), teamwork and also to travel to another country, Singapore.
