Electrical Training

On February 25, 2011 the Ezra Vogel Special Skills School was very honorary that Dr. and Madame Kawasaki and other honorific guests spent their useful and golden time to visit.


From left to right: Mr. Yem Yeng, Mrs. Nuon Phaly, behind Mrs. Nuon Phaly is Mr. Sovann Heng, Madame Kawasaki and her friend, Mr. Rasy, and Dr. Kawasaki.

  • Mr. Yem Yeng (The School Principle in Vogel School)
  • Mrs. Nuon Phaly (Theexecutive Director in FLO)
  • Mr. Sovann Heng (The Project Manager in Vogel School)
  • Dr. and Madame Kawasaki and friend (Japanese)

All the honorific guests arrived at 8 AM. The schoolchildren were in two lines opposite each other to welcome the guests with the happy face. When all the guests were walking between the two student lines, all the students were applauding until all guests came into the Science Class.

There are two groups of studying the Electricity with Dr Kawasaki:

  1. The first group started from 8:20-11:00 with the students in grade 5 & 6
  2. The second group started from 1:00-4:00 PM with the students in 4 

While conducting classes, we used the projector to show the lessons. With this projector the students could undersand Dr. Kawasaki's presetation easier.

The lessons  teaching in that  were about:

  1. Making Motor
  2. Part 1: Lighting LED on Bread Board
  3. Observe on Microscope
  4. Motor Assembly

All the students were very appreciated with this Science Class, especially for the morning class, they seem understood so far about what they have learnt from Dr. Kawasaki. And for the afternoon class, they seem also understood well too. According to our observation, there were many of the morning students, they really wanted to join the second class in the afternoon because they wanted to know and learn the new teaching from Dr. Kawasaki. But unfortunately the amount of the students were limited, there were only 30 students in each classes so they could not join with the second class in the afternoon. Even, we disagreed to allow them to join the second class as this, but they still stood outside the class from the window to peek what Dr. Kawasaki taught at that time. This showed about what they feel and interested in this Science Class.
Compare to the first class in the morning and second class in the afternoon, this first class was more active than the second class, because they could raise many questions to ask Dr. Kawasaki about what they have learnt. They said: When saw this electricity in the PowerPoin presentation, they thought it's difficult to make but when Dr. Kawasaki showed and led them to do, it's not difficult as they have thought because Dr. Kawasaki explained very clearly and slowly. They wish strong hopes next time to have such a great chance to learn some more of the new and bright ideas from Dr. Kawasaki.

On behalf of all schoolchildren and teachers (from Kawasaki-Rainbow-Primary school and Vogel-Primary-School), we would like to express our deep thank to all honored guests, especially Dr. Kawasaki and Madame Kayoko for getting around visiting and teaching us.

We do wish you good luck, healthy, and a long happiness.

This is the movie about the Science Class

Below is the photo album of the Science Class:

The students at the Ezra Vogel Special Skills School practiced and reviewed the electricity which taught by Dr. Kawasaki last year. Today they were learning of how to make the current flow by using the Board, Voltmeter, Socket, Lamp holder, Lamp, and Breaker.

The process of the current flow ran from the wire to the Breaker and continued to the Voltmeter which is one of the measurements that can help us to know about the energy we are using. Mostly the energy we are using nowadays is about 210v, 220v, 225v or 230v. According to the measure in the voltmeter during testing today showed 225V. It means that we are using the higher level of the energy. After voltmeter the current will run to the socket, so one question will be asked: ‘Why do we use the socket?’ Because it can help us to connect the energy from the current board to the other connections. Thus for this current board, we also use the switch in order to turn on and turn off the light.

All the students seem very happy to see what they have done with their achievement.

Therefore we have never forgotten the Science Class which taught by Dr. Kawasaki to our students several times ago and we would like to thank you very much to Dr. Kawasaki that he used and spent his valuable time to our country and brought his great idea about the electricity to open the Science Class in FLO, Vogel School, and Rainbow School.

Below is the photo album souvenir of Electricity reviewed and practiced:

On Friday, June 04th, 2010 all the schoolchidren reviewed and practiced about the electricity (Previous Event). They all understood about the lesson and could practice well. All the students were divided into 4 groups among the 34 students, 14 females and 20 males. Each groups there are 6-8 students to join together with the group members.

Through the observation on that day, We noted that all groups were very active and they could introduce and help the each other with to practice the electricity. There was no problem while practicing because they were really careful and paid really hard attention both testing the electricity, connecting the socket to the plug, and connecting the lamp holder to the contact.


We will repeat this event two weeks a month. So it means that they won't forget something they have studied about the electricity.

Finally, we would like to thank you so much for the souvenir of Dr. Kawasaki (Previous Article) that he gave the Vogel children a golden chance to learn and to know about the special skills of eletricity. We do hope to have the great chance again to meet him and to learn something new more about the electricity from him.

Best wish

Learning and Practicing the electricity of the Ezra Vogel Schoolboys-girls


On Monday and Tuesday, May 17th-18th, 2010 all students at the Ezra Vogel Special Skills School had special opporntunity to learn some electrics from their teachers that was the sample of Dr. Kawasaki (Visiting) , that he spent his valuable time to visit and teach the children about the electric last two weeked.
