Our exploration is entrepreneurship. Entrepreneurship is about business, which is about selling and marketing and other stuff. Basically our exploration is about inventing the product from 3D printer and how to start the business. 3D printer is a type of machine that printed the object. There are many types of 3D printers, like metal 3D printer, plastic 3D printer, food 3D printer, etc. For our class we use plastic 3D printer. The first step that we need to work on is thinking and deciding the product that you want to print out and sell. We need to make the prototypes and show people, also find out the design that we are going to print out. Then we need to ask people for feedback or some changes that people give. The program that we use to print out is 123D design to design the product and print it out. Finally we take that product that we print out and go to sell at different places.
The main thing of entrepreneurship exploration that I learned about is collaborating with team. I know it’s tough to collaborate in team because sometimes our teammates aren’t agree your idea and a few of time we have a small argument.
Too much sugar on cereal
The graph shows the change or shift in supply. Scientists found that there is too much sugar on cereal that mostly makes the kids or the people sick. Kids mostly eat cereal, but if the cereal has too much sugar the adult won’t buy that for kids to eat anymore. The reason are if there is too much sugar in cereal, it’s bad for the teeth the brain and make us become less strong. It shift the Demand line because of a change in tastes and preferences. The new equilibrium point show a decreasing of the price and a decreasing of quantity.
Name of Course: Anatomy 1

Number of Students: 12 students
Days We meet: August 12 – October 17
Course Description: In this Advanced Enrichment we learned about body. Our bodies have four systems: Skeletal system (bones), Digestive system (stomach), Respiratory system (lungs), Circulatory system (heart). We watched the video about people’s bodies. The digestive system is the system that help to break down the food and take the nutrients from the food and take the waste out of body. Digestive system is very important for our body because it helps you to break down the food into small pieces. The skeletal system is also important in our body because if you break the bones you will have a big problem. You have to go to the hospital and tell the doctor what is the problem. We also did the presentation for people to listen because we want people to take care of their health. In our group we shared into four teams and one team had three people. We had to share our position in the group: one was patient and two were nurse and doctor. We presented four things and they were Skeletal system, Digestive system, Respiratory system and Circulatory system. People used some clothes to wear when they were acting. We watched the videos and read the books to find information.
Name of Course: Robotics 3
Learning Facilitator: Max
Number of Students: 9
Days we Meet: Monday/Tuesday
Advanced Enrichment Dates: March 30- June 12
Course Description: In Robotics we did many things about programming the robots and also to build the robots by the legos. First we studied how to build the robots by the legos. So we divided into the group of two then we started to build the robots. We built the lego robots by following the instructions the first time. When we finished building the robots we started to study how to program the robots. When we knew about that we started to do the challenges with the programming by using the robots to follow the line. When we finished that challenge we also did the other challenges too. Then we took off all the shapes out from the robots and we started building the new shapes to make it stronger. We made whatever that we wanted. We did like that because we wanted to do the competition with each other. This competition if we wanted to win we had to make our robots stronger and when we went into the circle we tried to made the other robots go outthe circles.
Name of Course: World Leaders
Learning Facilitator: Sophorn
Number of Students: 10
Days we Meet: Thursday to Friday
Advanced Enrichment Dates: October 20 – January 16
Course Description: In World Leaders class we learned about the leaders and also the students learned to analyze the good or bad leaders all around the world. The good leaders are supposed to lead the country to develop and the leaders need to make the people get the peace. The bad leaders treat in bad way to the people in the country. We can understand the way how the famous leaders are leading for the country. The important part of our class was to understand the concepts of the leaders which means what are their ideas or inventions to change the country. All the leaders had different concepts like Gandhi. He led by integrity and non-violence. Also we watched a lot of movies because it helped us to get more ideas about the different leaders. The main movie that we watched was Gandhi. He was one of the most famous leaders all around the world because the way that he led shown the integrity. He had the mindset of non-violence. The most interesting part of our class was to learn about the quote of the leaders. For example Ms. Aung San Suu Kyi said “If you think you are helpless please help someone” and we think about her quote, do we understand or not. We also went on a the trip to meetMr. Kok Tha. He is the person that can share us a lot of information because he is the good leader. The leaders have many parts it is not just the leaders of the country they call the leaders. World Leaders was really nice because we can learn how to be the leaders.
Name of Course: Algebra A
Learning Facilitator: Jeff Boucher
Number of Students: 14
Dates: August 12 – January 16
Days we Meet: Monday – Tuesday
Course Description: In our Advanced Enrichment we are learning about Math. This advanced Enrichment last really long and really hard working. We learned the hard math by learning it step by step. There are many clever student in this class and all of them are very patience. Everyday in our class the math are getting harder and harder but we are getting smarter as the time keep going. Sometime we reallight that the math that we had learn could be use in real life. The important thing that we learn for the whole year are negative number, The Greatest Common Factors, linear equation, y=mx+b form or Slope-interception, parabola, Quadratic formula/equation….etc. All of this math section is very hard it is something that people will think it hard because they did not try yet and for that people who try they will think it is easy. But for us here we do not think it was hard or easy were just try our best.
