Exploration name: Recycle Community
EXploration Dates: 06 October 2014– 21 November 2014
Number of students: 12
Description: Students will work closely with community to solve their waste management and how to make use from it. In class students will learn about the effect of waste to living things on the earth, and find solutions to motivate community to care more about environment. In order to achieve this goal, students will do survey in the community to see what are the real problems in the village which is near our school. Then students will do field trip to interview people from Ministry of Environment and waste collecting company names CINTRI. Students will do Community Project Based which means they will collaborate with community to separate their waste into three kind as in Organic, Recycle, and Others. Through these, community not only benefits for their environment, but also improve their living by making compost.
Cambodia is a fast developing country. But some part of Cambodia need to be change and develop as well. As a Cambodian I am part of the change and I need to help my country grow better. Changer are people in the country we all did some little thing to help Cambodia. Let me tell you about little thing, if you do that well it mean a lot to the change and this are the mean project I had been in this year which I think I make that little thing.
- Animal Field Guide : This project is learning about animal in Cambodia and help to preserve them. So many animal is endangered and nearly facing extinction. People don’t care how important they are. My team and I go went to provinces to teach and explain about the animal because there are hunter in the village. We are making a book that explain that it called “Illustration guide to wildlife of Cambodia”. If you want you can buy some of the book too, it is out in January.
- Recycle Community : this project is basically learning about how to reduce reuse and recycle plastic so the world would be so polluted. We always wanted to see the world in a better way the world now is in danger if we don’t act now everybody in this world will be gone. Scientist had been predicting about the future they say the north and south pole will be melt and there will be float all over the land. We help people in our community to recycle stuff so everybody live happily with their family.
- Agriculture : this project is mainly learning about rice how to grow it and how do we make better quality rice? In Cambodia rice is one of the most important thing in Cambodia economic growth. We learned it from the real farmer in the community. We help came back and try to make our own rice growing but the rice did not work. But we learn and share the knowledge with others that the big idea of this project.

Course Description: In our Advanced Enrichment we learned about Math. This Advanced Enrichment lasted really long and the students had a really hard time working on that. We learned the hard math by learning it step by step. There are many clever students in this class and all of them are very patient. Every day in our class the math got harder and harder but we got smarter as the time kept going. Sometimes we realized that the math that we had learned could be used in real life. The important things that we learned for the whole year were negative numbers, the Greatest Common Factors, linear equations, y=mx+b form or Slope-interception, parabolas, Quadratic formula/equation, etc. All of these math sections were very hard. It is something that people will think that it is hard because they did not try yet and for those people who try they will think it is easy. But for us here we do not think it was hard or easy we were just trying our best.
