Why is STEM important to Cambodia?

Occupy Mars Learning Adventures Mobile

What is STEM? (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).   Why is it important for Cambodian students throughout the world.?  Why are we looking to include Cambodian students in the Occupy Mars Learning Adventures program?

The Occupy Mars Learning Adventures programs

We are looking to communicate with teachers and students from around the world.  We are in involved in conversations about STEM topics and our projects are building robots, Martian habitats, computer science, and conducting science and engineering experiments that lead to building prototypes for Occupy Mars.  This is a wonderful intro auction for students in grades 5 through 12.   This is an afterschool, weekend and summer distance learning program.   Star Party_9203 an opportunity to create video and audio podcasts of their work for Kids Talk Radio.   http://www.KidsTalkRadioLA.com.

One day mankind will occupy the planet Mars and when we do we would like to have representatives of the people from all nations around the world.   Our headquarters is located in Long Beach, California.  We are surrounded with wonderful Cambodian people.   We invite you to make a contribution to the Occupy Mars Learning adventures.

We need your voice to enter in on the conversation.   You can learn more about our work by visiting:

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

Science and Technology (S&T) is crucially important in national development. It is a known fact that no nation can develop without science and technology regardless of how rich of natural resources the nation is endowed with. What is science and technology? Science is the study of knowledge which can be made into a system and which depends on seeing and testing facts while technology is the practical application of scientific knowledge. Developed nations of the world like the America, Germany, France etc. boast of several scientific inventions which make them to be rated as the world powers. Science and technology is the pivot of any nation’s development.

A nation without science and technology or has to depend on science and technology of other country is definitely a backward nation and virtually not an independent nation. Such nation will be considered undeveloped. Science and technology is associated with modernity and it is an essential tool for rapid development. Modern gadgets in all aspects of human comfort are inventions of science and technology. Electricity, aircraft, telephone, television, computers and other forms of machinery could not have been invented without science and technology.

Science and technology is also very essential in the production of medicine and treatment of diseases. A nation which lacks the necessary science and technology in this area will have to depend on other developed nations for the existence of its people. Such a nation cannot be said to be independent because it has to depend on the whim and caprices of other nations with the necessary science and technology to survive.

The development of a nation depends solely on the amount of science and technology at the disposal of such nation. A strong and virile nation is a nation with adequate technology to make its people comfortable. A nation without science and technology also cannot feed its own people because agriculture requires the application of science and technology for adequate amount of food production.

Cambodia appreciates its development partners in sharing and assisting science and technology for socio-economic development of the nation, attempting to leapfrog the time wasted in its hardship period. Admitting limited resource, it is important that the development of science and technology be in concerted effort and focused direction, for which the nation appreciates the support of the Republic of Korea in assisting the development of Cambodia’s National Science and Technology Master Plan, 2014-2020, focusing on establishing S&T foundation environment, activating S&T climate, securing R&D capabilities, and empowering of S&T based core industry capabilities.

This website is an attempt to provide details on the S&T master plan and to coordinate and facilitate future development of S&T in Cambodia.
