Engineering Stand

Engineering Stand is a class that introduces students in different types and steps that engineers do. In class, we had a project of “Real world engineering examples/design process project comparison” In this project, we research different types of engineering and had to come up with a project in that types and use the design process for the project. The project could be our own project that we had or a project that had done. We do this so we can open our mind up to different types and change the perspective of engineering. Another assignment that we did was to write a biography of a famous person who went to university for engineering. I did some research and found out about Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon. I found some interesting fact about his man and I got inspired by his hard-work and passionate about what he loves.

Here is Neil Armstrong biography I wrote:

 

Neil Armstrong is an engineer and becomes the first person to step on the moon. He was born on August 5, 1930, in Wapakoneta, Ohio. Neil Armstrong is the oldest child in the family.

When Neil Armstrong was little, his father took him to an Air Show, where plane race across the sky. From that moment that Neil Armstrong saw the plane, he fall in love with the plane and always wanted to fly airplanes by himself. So he wanted to be a pilot. When Neil Armstrong was 14, he took a flight lesson for 2 years and he got the pilot’s licenses for it. Which mean he could fly a plane by himself. He loves designing different models of airplanes and tests it at his house.

At the same time, Neil Armstrong loves learning about space and wondering what is out there in the sky. Neil Armstrong is a hard-working student and has the curiosity to learn new thing in space, he usually used a telescope to see star and planet in space. Neil Armstrong went to college for an engineer.

After that, he got his first job as a fighter pilot during a war. He had to fly a plane called Aircraft, Neil Armstrong flew about 78 missions during that war. One of that mission, his plane got shot and he had to parachute his way to survive. After the war, he becomes a test pilot, where he had to test new planes by flying to make sure that these plane are safe for other, dangerous job.

To further out his dream about space and planes, he decided to become an astronaut as a pilot that fly to space. Neil Armstrong got pick to be a pilot to fly a spaceship the moon. He flew the spaceship and landed it safely and Neil Armstrong the person ever to step on the moon. Million and millions of people were watching the trip from Earth as he steps on the moon and put an American flag on it. Neil Armstrong’s footprints are still on the moon today because on the moon there is no wind to erase or to cover them.

After the mission, he becomes an administrator for Aeronautics at NASA headquarters. He resigned from NASA in 1971. Then he became a professor in engineering at the University of Cincinnati. His mission is still in everyone head and proud of him, and he won so many awards in his life. Neil Armstrong is a hard working person and had to go through challenges to succeed in his life.

Sadly, he died with legacy on August 25, 2012, at the age of 82 in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Neil Armstrong is so passionate about his work and his dream. He was determined because he works hard in school as well as the university to achieve his dream. Even though he almost died once from the war, he is still determined to do and further his career.  Neil Armstrong is such a hardworking person with his dream that he would do whatever it takes no matter how hard he had to work and how risky his job was. He is so passionate about his job because of he when he was a pilot he always designed new method to fly planes at his own in his own time. Neil Armstrong life is so inspirational with his determination, hardworking, passionate, and the success that he had inspired so many to chase their dream and not give on their dream even though how big the dream is/are.

Spreading awareness for Lacking of Nutrition in Cambodia

On the 28th to 30th of September, 2018, My team and I went on a mission of spreading the importance of nutrition in Cambodia. Since a lot of Cambodian don’t really know much about it so we want to share the knowledge of them for their own good as well as helping us spread the words. During the workshop I can tell the Villagers learned a lot of the workshop, they seem to engaged and asked questions. It was a little hard to hard with the villagers like sharing with them on what we learned, they never heard of the method of it. So it is hard for them to follow as well as understand us, but it will get easier as the workshop goes on. I learned some life listen to be patient with people and language to talk to them, we need to be respectful, at the same time trying to spread the information while sometimes they don’t really listen. Overall of the workshop, it went well and I am really proud that I am a part of the group to help Cambodia by this project.

HIV workshop for Mondulkiri

On March 2018, I was in a cool and interesting class of learning about HIV. The topic of HIV is typically a new concept for Cambodia. The discrimination toward these people who are HIV positive is awful. The topic itself is a complex topic to understand and we tried to spread the awareness of this issue to Cambodian. After 7 weeks, of learning about HIV. It is time for our group to take action to and make sure that we can spread this awareness to Cambodian.  We had one work on March as well in Mondulkiri. The workshop was so professional and a lot of students around Cambodia attend the workshop. There were professors and experts about topics that they were leading and we were the only session leader who is students lead.

It was a phenomenal experience, to lead a session that addresses a huge problem in Cambodia. Our session was quite different from other, we did a lot of discussions so participants could share ideas or their antidote to other comfortably and could potentially learn something. Every participant was really passionate so focused and asked a lot of great questions. The session wasn’t long, but we felt like we distributed what we want.

At the end of it, participants were asked to mark their goal to help to spread that information. We were very proud of our-self to see their goals and to see they can become a change agent in Cambodia.

 

 

HIV/AIDs leading workshop

On 28th of March, 2017. I am a part of a team that leads HIV workshop at my school. I am one of the session leaders. Before the workshop started I felt a bit nervous and scared about if I miss anything up. During the session I felt like I did well and proud of myself. The students that attend asked so many good questions. It was really valuable to share what I learned to other students about the problem of discrimination toward people living with HIV in Cambodia. I was presenting about treatments in Cambodia, it was really fun with our simulation on candy as medicine, the attendees seem interesting, focus shared a lot of ideas and asked a lot of questions.

My mission statement.

My mission statements are I will share what I learned from this expiration. My neighbor always told me that I am really skinny so I must have HIV. From what I learned I will explain to them about HIV and the problem of discrimination that needed to stop. My family and my relative, been carrying a lot of myth about HIV that it not even true at all. Once I go back to my hometown I’ll clear that up and really hope that they will understand. Not just to my family, I will all help spread this awareness to my friends that don’t know about HIV. I really hope that they will help and stop the discrimination toward PLHIV.

Visiting UNAIDS

On February 2018, I went on a field trip to UNAIDS. UNAID is an organization that works with the Cambodian government to help to spread awareness to Cambodian about the problem of HIV that is happening. My friends and I asked them a lot of questions that we wondered before that. We went to see and understand how they spread awareness of HIV to Cambodian. I learn in this class where we learned about HIV and we wanted to help spread awareness of this problem. Our project goal is to create a workshop for Cambodia students to join and let them help spread this information. Hiv is a problem in Cambodia because once someone test with HIV positive they feel ashamed and not wanting to get treatments, because of the environment around make them feel that way. So this problem needs to be solved. We hope our workshop would change someone perspective on this problem and make it better.

Animation

In September 2017, I participated in a project about animation. I studied a lot about animation, like drawing and different things that make animation interesting. Since it was a 7 weeks project, we did get to animate only basic stuff like bouncing ball. It was cool and made me realized that animation is not easy to make at all.

Game Design

   

Game Design is a project that my group created a board game. This board game is special from the other board game, the board game mainly focuses on Cambodia curriculum. What this board game does is it helps students in Cambodia to learn the different way from usual, but we’re not trying to change how the whole curriculum system. So, this board game it about Climate Change Problem, building solutions in Cambodia to reduce CO2 in Cambodia is the way to win the game. To build solutions the players need to answer questions from their curriculum to earn point to build the solution to help Cambodia reduce CO2. This game basically helps students to review their lessons, makes new friends, release stress from just sitting down and listen to teacher speaks. Most of the government schools in Cambodia, students sat down and listen to the teacher and took notes the hold time and it keeps of stressful and might get bored out of that. We went to a school in Phnom Penh and most of the students seem like they are enjoying this board game that Liger students created it. It seems like a board game is new to Cambodian students so it should be an interesting and new experience for the students. We hope students in Cambodia learn new experience from the game and make the game fun and learn at the same time. So this board game design is to help students so much that the next group would produce this board game to 100 schools in Cambodia.

Preventative Health

My reflection is to share what I learned to other students to help themselves with the health problem. I wanted everyone in Cambodia to be healthy. I wanted to share with Cambodian students because I also one of them. I never know about health care before I learned about it. Before I learned about health care I don’t care about my health at all I just eat the food that I like. But I understand more about the health problem in Cambodia. After I learned about it, I wanted to share my knowledge to other. My team went to Koh Rong and I went to two communities to share our knowledge with other students. We teach the students in Koh Rong hopping them to share with their family to make their community healthier. This what I have helped my country in this seven weeks. It doesn’t look much but, it means a lot to me because I help students in my country to be healthier. After all the hard work that we’re done we went explore marine ecosystem. We went snorkeling and buddy diving with two excerpts(Filippo and Sam). It was my best day of my life, I saw very crazy things in the ocean that I been dreaming to see before! I saw seahorse, starfish, beautiful fish and crazy organism in the ocean that I never saw it before. It was a really great experience for me to learn and to help my country by sharing what I know to other people and learned about marine ecosystem.

Change Agent

In this Project we try to interview change agent around the or in Cambodia. WE interview many change agent around the world and they really nice. We take the information to share to people in Cambodia to help them for their future we somebody need it to become a change agent in Cambodia or be a young business person. We’re not just interview and share to Cambodia we also learned from it. When we interview I learn a lot from the videos. Many change agent they gave us really good suggestion so I also be a change agent myself to change my country. It a really great opportunity for me to learn new skill that can help me and my country.
We had Youtube Channel and Facebook page.

Capturero

I interview Peter Dilworth. He is one of the founder for 3Doodler. Peter give me a really good suggestion for me to share to my team and my country.

123D Design – Product

In 3D Design class we try to help the students in Cambodia to use the computers. 150 school in Cambodia have computers lab but they only learn typing from it. So the minister of education in Cambodia want to team to teach them about 3D design so they have a better view with with computers and it might help their future or Cambodia because of 3D design.We thought that the really great opportunity for us the help Cambodia and to improve our skill because when we teach other people we also learn like experience so it good for use and we must choose to do it. We have three programs to use Blender, 123d design and Free Cad. First we choose to work on 123D design. We have a lesson to teach some students in one school. As the life in change so we have to be flexible and 123D design have a problem with the computer that they have so we now work on Free Cad. Our team come up many solution to help them but we only use one of them, it’s the tutorial videos about how to use tools in 3D design.

I learn by my self in 3D class. It took me 45 minutes
