Hello! My name is Venghour. I was born Friday 24th May, 2002. Now I study at Liger Learning Center school. In my family I have two brothers and two sisters and I am the second brother in my family. In my free time I like to swim, play football, read and draw pictures. My favorite book is Roald Dahl, like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Fantastic Mr. Fox. In Liger I am strong at reading. We take trips outside for students to study outside. My best trips are to Mondulkiri province and Oxfam. The thing that I need to learn more is how to teach the people to understand clearly.
Exploration Name; Entrepreneurship
Dates:10/6/2014 – 11/21/2014
Number of Students: 12
Location of Trips Taken: ARC Hub PNH, Northbridge, Small World,
Central Market, Cham Pu Ka-ek Market
Essential Questions: How to make a business?
Course Description: In our Exploration is called Entrepreneurship. We had four groups. There are HP-Pro, Shook, Sa-art Action and CPH. Every person in each group had different job to do, like leader, marketing, blogger, designer and website. Every Friday, we went to Arc Hub to study with Kichong. We’ve been learning some terms. All the terms that we’ve learned are connected to business. Here are some terms that we’ve learned: profit means how much money we earned ; loss means the money that loose from our business ; feedback is comment, suggestion, improvement, advice ; prototype is the sample to learn from ; insight means understanding people vision ; proactive is to cause something to happen and not waiting for good luck. On the last day, we take a test to make sure that we understand all the term that we’ve learn. We wrote essay for the test.

Name of Course: Earth Science
Learning Facilitator: Jeffrey Holte
Number of Students: 10
Days we Meet: Monday/Tuesday
Advanced Enrichment Dates: August 11-October 17, 2014
Course Description: On the first day of our Advanced Enrichment we were all so excited to study about Earth Science. Earth Science means to study about the Earth and all of the things that are related to the environment and the Earth. In our Advanced Enrichment we studied about the rocks, water, weather and all of the planets in space. In Earth Science class we not just only studied and got the theory from the teacher, we also made an experiment together in class. For example, the thing that we have been experimenting with is making the sugar crystal experiment, the erosion and some other activity. Our group helps each other and works together as a team, not work alone and always listen to the teacher. At the end of our Advanced Enrichment we all were a little bit sad because we all wanted to study more about all of the things on Earth and all of the things that are really special for the Earth.
Name of Course: Physics
Learning Facilitator: Phearun
Number of Students: 12
Dates: August 11-October 17, 2014
Course Description: Our group learned about Physics. When we began to learn Physics we started to learn about the meaning of Physics. First we just listened to the teacher and learned about the theory of Physics. Sometimes the teacher told the meaning of important words in class. Then we started to work and learn about the Earth science. When we began to learn about Earth science teacher told us how many planets in solar system. Then the teacher mailed to us one video that showed about the new planet. Then he told us to take notes about that video. When we finished learning about that new planet we started to learn about the gravity on Earth. Then he put the work for us to do. When we all knew and understood about it he taught us about the new topics are buoyancy and density of the water. He also told us about formula how to find out the work that he put for us. So now we just learn more about buoyancy.
Name of course: Biology
Learning Facilitator: Jojo
Number of students: 10
Advanced Enrichment Date: Session 1: Aug. 11- Oct 17
Biology is a class that studies about life and organisms. In this class we learned part of Ecology, how are biotic and abiotic factors interconnected, and some parts of Botany, how plants do the photosynthesis. We also studied about cells that are connected to elements and organelles. Every student researched about their own organelles. After researching, we explained to our classmates about the organelles and then we did some experiments with the microscope. By using the microscope to experiment we saw some parts of the cells. We all understood a lot about the cells and we were ready to start a new project. Then we started a project about the cells. We had two groups of students and five students in each group. One of the groups worked on the Animal Cells project and the other worked on the Plant Cells project. The two projects took a long time to finish because they were difficult projects and we had to paint on the big papers and use Scratch with Makey Makey. However these projects were already finished and all of the students felt so proud of themselves and it was a good time for them to collaborate as a team.
Exploration name: Ecotourism
Exploration dates: August 13-October 3, 2014
Number of students: 13
(1) What is ecotourism?
(2) How can ecotourism help change our country?
Ecotourism means to travel to natural areas that protect environment and help people life at location became better. Ecotourism was also about helping to preserve the environment. Our ecotourism group went to Chi Phat to study about the ecotourism in Chi Phat. Also we learned about how ecotourism in Chi Phat are different from other ecotourism sites. Our big goal when we went to Chi Phat was to interview as many people as possible. We interviewed different people to get different answers and all the people had different perspectives. After we interviewed a lot of people we came back and studied about the information we found some areas of concern. Our group made a recommendation to Chi Phat community about the areas of concern. Some areas of concern are education, transportation, marketing, collaboration, and energy. After we finished we will send it to Martin and Prom Hong, the CBET (Community Based Ecotourism Site) directors.
