What was the main thing you learned during Entrepreneurship?
In Entrepreneurship class we have learned about how to make a business. Also I learn about how to make a product from 3D printing. I learned the step to do 3D printing product and it hard because we need to think of a new idea. It hard because we did it wrong many times so we have to improve it and ask a lot of people for feedback.
Six terms you I think it the most important and why it important?
I think the six most important terms are: Entrepreneur, Target Audience, Market, Failing fast, Proactive and Big goals vs Small goals. I think that six terms are important because for business we use that words a lot. Entrepreneur is important because Entrepreneur we need to think of a new idea and it can help people a lot. Also it important Entrepreneur not just think about the the money like the profit and loss. Target Audience important because if we want to make one product and we don’t know who we will sell to it hard. So we need to think of our big target audience. Market also important, we need to know where we will sell our product. For example we will sell in by online or in supermarket. In business it not go smooth it will have something to make you failing fast. Failing fast is good because you can learn from it and improve it. In Entrepreneurship class each group we have a big goal that is better than small goal. Big goal we can think about our product what is the benefit and how it can help change our country.
If I could do Entrepreneurship again, what would I do different? What product? What team? How to sell?
If I could this exploration again I will make a book organizer because many people they just make a mess for their book. That is the reason I want to make that product. Also In a group I want three people because it easy to choose and idea if we have a lot of member easy to do work but really hard to discuss with each other. I will make it different by not use a lot of to make my product because my class it take a long time to make. Also when it nearly time we not ye finish and we don’t know where we want to go to sell. Another idea is in class we have to make our self more focus not play a lot and do what you suppose to do.
This is our Entrepreneurship group 3 at Expo Koh Pich.
Our class have divide into four group. In each group needed to think of one new product that can help solve a problem. In my group have three members including me. Our group come up with two ideas. First idea was cup and the second idea was book standing. It really hard for us to decide which one is the best. I told my idea to my team I chose book standing because most of people like to read book and it a new idea that people Cambodia never see before. Also if we make a cup the plastic will lead out when we put hot water. However, we all had chose book standing. Our product have two design because we want to put big books and smalls books easily.
Benefit: Mostly when people read the books they just hold it and it can make their hands hurt when they hold it along time. If you put your book on our product it much easier because you don’t need to hold it. Our product can keep the page still so it not waste your time to find which page you on. Also when you put your book on our product you can whatever you want like play instrument, singing and many other things. This product you can last for along time and it easy to take it with you because it not really big.
Who will buy our product?: Many people can use our products because it can help them a lot with read. These are people who will buy:
There are many things to learn in Waste Water Sanitation class but we only focus on two big ideas are Self-Composting Toilet and Wetland. We did a lot of research and learn many things from our classmate. Our goals in this exploration are to solve the problem about our school constructed wetland. We also want to make our own design on self-composting toilet.
When we learn about wetland we were learn with one expert from Wetlands Work name Solyka. She told us a lot about wetland and how it work and what are some benefit about wetland. We also went to Free The Bear to visit the constructed wetland that Wetlands Work built. Solyka is our guide she explain how does it works and what materials that use to build it up.
Our class have a night trip that went to Kampong Chhang. At Kampong Chhang we went to floating area to see how do people that live at there using their toilet and interview some family that they use self-composting toilet. When we interview people at there most of them use simple toilet that straight away to the river and when they need water to cook or shower they use that water. Some people said that they don’t want to use self-composting toilet because they need to do a lot of work so they think it better or them to use a simple one.
After we collect all the information our class had make a design for new wetland and we also make a prototype of new self-composting toilet.
Ecotourism means to travel to natural areas that protect environment and help people life at location became better. Ecotourism was also about helping to preserve the environment. Our ecotourism group went to Chi Phat to study about the ecotourism in Chi Phat. Also we learned about how ecotourism in Chi Phat are different from other ecotourism sites. Our big goal when we went to Chi Phat was to interview as many people as possible. We interviewed different people to get different answers and all the people had different perspectives. After we interviewed a lot of people we came back and studied about the information we found some areas of concern. Our group made a recommendation to Chi Phat community about the areas of concern. Some areas of concern are education, transportation, marketing, collaboration, and energy. After we finished we will send it to Martin and Prom Houng, the CBET (Community Based Ecotourism Site) directors.
Course Description: In our Exploration class we have learned about plastics and also we learned how to become TV reporters. We also had a lot of trips because we wanted to know more information about plastics. For example we went to BKKM (Boeung Keng Kong Market), City mall, Cintri and the Ministry of Environment. The reasons why we went on the trips were because we wanted to know how the people use the plastics each day. We wanted to compare which market uses a lot of plastics. When we went on the trip we also interviewed the sellers and the buyers about the plastics. The questions that we asked them were important for us and they also told us a lot of information that they knew. When we went to the Cintri we can know how they work. Cintri has one important idea like how to help the environment. They told us that if we wanted the people to follow us like they use less plastics it needs to start from you. Then when they see us do that they will do too. In class we also learned about plastics and we made the TV channel about plastic so other people can know how bad the plastics are and the problems to the environment and animals, when there are plastics a lot. So our group did the presentation to the people in the community that is near our school. Some people they nearly cry because they know about it and never hear the children can know a lot of information about plastics. When we were in class we divided it in the groups, some people wrote the reflection when we came back from the trip and put it in the blog and some people edited the video. Some time when we went to trip like go to BKKM we went with other groups that learn about plastics, so can share our ideas and some people they can get new ideas.
