E-Commerce is a project that is creating a website to share Liger’s cookbook. We are learning and figuring things out together because we haven’t had a lot of experience in website designing. This cookbook was created by Liger’s students which include both Khmer and foreign food. Since we have to cook our own food as we moved to senior year, we need the cookbook to guild guy us to cook our own breakfast and dinner. We want to share as well as giving it a gift. In our website, we will receive any donation and give the gift of the cookbook. 100% of the donation will go to further the student’s education and they pursue their passion.
The animation is a project we learned about and how to animate simple animation. We got an opportunity to practice our animation with an organization name Nature Discovery Center. The organization asked us to animate a short animation film about evolution in Khmer. Which as our tasks, we don’t think we had enough experiences in animating short video yet. So, we decided to visit Phare Ponleu Selpak- a school that focuses on art toward students that want to pursue it as a career. We talked to students and teachers at the school, we gain a lot of new knowledge and experience in animating. Now we are in the process of create the short video.
This is an artwork that I’ve done:
Aquaponic is a project working to build an aquaponic system for our school. Aquaponics is a system that feeds fish and uses their waste for nutrients to grow plants. The system need only roughly 10 percent of the water that needs with soil-based agriculture methods. So aquaponic is a system save water while can produce the same amount of food as soil-based agriculture methods and we can raise fish while doing that also. So far we are working on building the systems. We are in a good position in term of the speed we want the system to be running. We have been halfway throw the building process. Now, we are starting to make a list of thing we need in order to complete the system.
In the animation class, I did research about animation and have been trying different software for animation. I am also have been doing a lot of drawing as well. As a team, we are learning together and trying to different projects do. Since I less experience in animation my teammates have been helping a lot. I am currently trying to use Opentoonz.
Solar Pi is a project that implements Pi-computer to Cambodia government schools. The Pi-computer run by solar because we want to have it in the rural area that can’t access technology, especially computer. We got sponsored for some computer to put out in the school. We teach students to use basic computer skills by making tutorials in videos to guide them. The school name Chous, located in Takeo, Cambodia. On 26th, November 2018, we visited the school again and proved Mousepads 25, Keyboard and mouse set 3, Plastic covers 25, and pretest. We gave the pretest to the students so we can see the students English level and can place them in different classes.
In class, we had to come up with problem and solutions to help solve. I got a team 4 members, and our project is “Reducing traffic in Phnom Penh”. We brainstorm and did a lot of research to come up with different ideas to reduce traffic in Phnom Penh. We interview people who traveled everyday in the city to see what they think cause the traffic and how long and ideas that might help toward the problem. So we came up ideas and evaluating alternatives.
Critical Teen Issues is a year-long project that talks about issues that teen are facing. The first round of the project we mainly focus on the relationship between friends, family, and partner. We discussed those topics with our classmates and learned more about each other as well as how to make those relationships healthy with your friends, family, and partner. We are planning to lead a workshop for teenagers in Cambodia and help them discuss problems with them and hoping to give them advice. Cambodia is a little bit strict with teenagers especially their look and behavior. Some teenagers gain pressure from that. As a teen myself and the group, we want to help and encourage them to discuss with us and help us give advice on their issues. We are still working on planning the workshop as round one in this project.
I am doing this project Virtual Reality(VR). Virtual Reality a technology device that let you see 3-dimensional art shape around you. For PC gaming in general, we use a mouse that keyboard to control the game, but for VR gaming, you just need a set up of VR system and you can play the game by moving yourself or doing actions to play, it is more realistic. As a team, we have a goal of designing our own game. Now I am just a beginner in this project so I had to learn a program that supports VR, which is Unity. I am learning to design and tool in unity design.
