This is the fifth year of the Liger Learning Center, and my first Exploration was the Iron Defiency. Well most people in the world didn’t know the advantages of iron in our body and some of them didn’t know how to get those iron. Before I talk about the iron, I first want to introduce to you about the red blood cell (RBC). One fuciton of the RBC is to carry the oxigen (O2) to our body. So if we don’t have enough RBC in our body, that means we didn’t have enough RBC, and this means that we don’t get enough O2. To solve that issue we need to eat more green vegetable and red blood meat. There is one company that manufacture the product that we put in our soup or water, and it will give you more iron in the food and that company name Lucky Iron Fish.
So my facilitator Karen, made an Exploraiton about the anemia to help to advertise the Lucky Iron Fish to the Cambodain at Sem Reap to distribute the fish to the villagers at there. At that event, my team the iron deficiency Exploration made a presentation to introduce the fish to them, by making a acting presentation. At the end of Sharation the Lucky Iron Fish company gave each of us a Lucky Iron Fish. I really love this Exploration, and the reason is it helps me in science class a lot.

September 16 to Spetember 18 (Friday to Sunday). A team of Liger students participate in the event or competition called the Start Up Weekend, and I’m one of those people also. What is a Start Up Weekend? Well this event is teaching you about how to start our own business and I think that this is a really cool opportunity to learn and to start our own business plus to netwoork with other people. At there, the manager of the event invited people that had participate before to come a share their idea. On Friday we were try to come up a solution to solve the education problem in Cambodia. My idea was to create a connection between students and teachers and share their idea. But at last I didn’t pass by the judges.
At September 7, 2016, I was joined the competition call 2016 ICT 4Ag Competition. It is a local competition, this competition is about our imagination of solving the agricultural dufficalty especially rice and cassava. So I came up with an idea of growing rice, usually farmers in Cambodia plant rice using hand one-by-one. So to solve that problem I came up with an idea of growing the rice plan 4 at a time. So that they can grow the rice bette and faster. So I submited the applicaiton, than at last I didn’t win the competition. But it still okay for me because that is just an experience.
