This Exploration is not about any change it just about, renew the VIP room in my school. The new VIP room is in the process of making it. In the VIP room there are Trophy, Book that we created, 3D map of our school, school product, and our school picture. Before we create a new 3D map of our school we need to learn the software call Blender, for me working on Blender is ok because I have work on it for 2 and a half year, and this is the model I have make.
On March 2019, I have selected to join a robotic competition in China call GARC, (I forgot the full word). The Competition was tough, I said tough because the rule of the competition is really hard to do it. My team have four people, we work together really well but sometime we argue a lot because sometime we have different idea to build the robot but however it not break us apart. On the day of competition we don’t if we lost or win but the only thing our point is -148 (negative 148) because if we don’t finish the mission they will add the full score and minus our score. After the competition we have a great time there with other people from other country.

This project is about us (Liger student) going to give a government student a experience about going outdoor, This project is not about going to play outside and take selfie, play around, sleep in good hotel and stuff we go and experience the outside environment Ex: sleep in tent, cook our own food, hike the mountain and more. We did contact to an organization called Kape, we did a trip to Kampong Cham which Kape located, We plan to do a workshop with them about the project but We decide not to do a workshop with them but play some game with them to introduce us to them, The thing when well everything when well and we came back. Back to our school we did pick the student that participate the most and plan to do the work shop, But this plan is still planing, the project is not end yet and we still working on it, We about to go to Oral for our pre-trip. Overall, our plan is still going, had a plan to go to a pre-trip on 18-20/11/2019 for prepare for the organization that we plan with.
Why are we doing this, because we saw that government school student didn’t the opportunity to go out and tracking, what they mostly do is ride a car or motorbike to where they want to go, and when they arrive they only eat there and come back without camping and stuff, So we want the new generation like us to experience the outdoor environment, so they have an idea of going out to camp.
To empower Cambodian youth to be outdoor leaders and environmental stewards by introducing them to natural spaces, raising awareness of conservation threats, and nurturing the passion and skills needed to positively impact their communities.

This week I have a learn about what is nature and what wilderness. Our teacher had given us a sheet of paper to go and observe nature that what you see outside, what hear, what you learn and write them down the sheet of paper. The teacher also plays an activity like she writes the word and tell us to write something down that you experience with that word. We have learned about wilderness, we have to debate what we think our liger campus is wilderness or no. the last day of this week we had done something call rope and tree scenario together as a team and we did well.
This week I have been doing some activities like making a way for our teammate walk throw liger campus. My there are Mony, me, Mariya and Sokheng, our way is to start from the hill and walk throw the campus to the lit studio. Another activity is we have to think about what will happen when we go out on the big trip and how to solve it quickly. The team is the same from the first, it was difficult is time because of it more advanced than the first one.
We did go to Mondulkiri for 3 days. The first day we didn’t do anything yet because of it gets dark, we can’t go hike so we cook our food and build a campfire for the rest of the night. The second day what we did it eat our breakfast then we when to the waterfall called ពូទាំងwaterfall. We eat lunch there with an elephant, also we get to test the new soup too. The soup is made out of all vegetable it test very good. We went back and we had our dinner then campfire again. The third day we hike for 6 km to go to the waterfall. There are two waterfalls, one is small and other is big. The big waterfall is interesting because it falls from the high place and at that place is like a water fan because of the water for the waterfall. We went back 6 km again and we did stop and play at the grassland it was fun because we can play hide and seek and also my friends can take a lot of pictures. We didn’t cook our dinner because we were too late for the shop so we went to a restaurant. The restaurant is so slow. In the morning we also buy the breakfast from other people and we head back to liger.
Say No to Plastic exploration is for Liger to stop using single-use plastic like a plastic bag, straw, plastic cup, styrofoam, and other things. In the team have 16 members for this exploration, we try to find a way to stop using plastic but it so hard because convince people to stop using something that they use every day is not easy, people are fighting back for using single using plastic. Our group has found some staff to replace the signal-use of plastic such as bioplastic bag, bioplastic straw, stainless steel straw, grass drinking straw, and Fabric. We found bioplastic bags in a website called Only Clenbodai. This is some picture that we have.
