Once upon a time, there were 50 students that selected from Cambodia to go to the STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) world to do STEAM challenge. They were delighted to be there and enjoying the advanced technology. They saw many murals hung on the wall, and there were classes about math and science were going on. Also, there were so many tall buildings in white, purple, red, and colourful color. Vuthea, the most powerful leaders of the boy house number 1 was very curious about computer science at there. Jolena, the young regal leader of the girl house number 2 was very selfish, but though her house was very strong. “Look at Kota” said Ordella, the kindest and nicest leader of girl house number 4. Kota, was the shyest leader, but his house was very good at STEAM. “Oh! We saw our enemy, be very careful” said Hiya, the girl in house 4. While others were very good at STEAM, very strong, and knew what to do, house number 4 still struggled with this challenge of deciding who is going to join what activity and came up with the strategies to win. The team that win this challenge will get to stay in this world and get to study new stuffs and will go to Mars to do science experiment. The teams that lose will get back to Earth . The girls in house number 4 giggled and felt confident that they can do this.
“Guys, please pay attention!”, shout Shiba, the judge. “He seemed so mean and I don’t like him at all”, whispered Hiya to Ordella. Next to Ordella was Jolena. “Just pay attention!” shout Jolena. The judge began talking with eyes looking at Hiya then everyone. To win this challenge you all need to create a rube goldberg that is 25 meters and create a mural that explain about STEAM in your world. House 4 and house 3 members left to their apartment. “That’s so convenient!” said Vuthea to Jolena in a smirk look. “I can’t wait to see your face when you are lost.” reply Jolena.
The next morning house 4 came earlier than others to have a meeting and decide who is going to do what. Ordella came up and started to talk in front of the other 11 girls in Conference Room. After the meeting, they got Hiya, Vymin, Rita, Malis, Pili, Yima on Rube Goldberg activity, and Ordella, Uni,Tina, Finai, Woymi, and Anna on making murals about STEM in Cambodia. Finally the rest of the houses came. It seemed like they knew already who is going to do what. “All right, all right”, cried Shiba. I hope that all of you know what to do. Why don’t we begin with Rube Goldberg at Sport Court.
The supplies that they will need are in the middle of the sport court. Then the four houses were at each corners. Before Ordella exit the sport court to do her murals at the art class, she went up and told everyone in Rube Goldberg to collaborate and cheers for each other. “Thanks, Ordella, we will try our best” said Rita. “Are you ready?” asked, Shiba. “Yes!” shouted everyone. The whistle went once, twice, and thrice, everyone scurried to get the materials. Vymin, Malis, and Yima were drawing how will their rube goldberg is going to look like. Hiya seemed very anxious and a bit bossy while Rita was taking stuffs that Pili took from the supplied box and began to build. After 40 minutes, it looked like everyone a bit exhausted because of the weather and from working too hard. “Guys, be creative, their teams are nearly finished and we only have 20 minutes left”, said Hiya in a hurry tone. Rita worked very efficient and very creative. After the ball went through the tube, the ball will hit the needle to knock the balloon. The it went to touch the knife and that knife will cut the orange in half. “Oh, I think our rube goldberg will be the best”, said Malis to Hiya. “Yeah, it will”, replied Hiya. Our rube goldberg was function very well. “Peeb, Preeeeeeeeeb” the sound of the whistle. It was time and everyone finished with their rube goldberg except Vuthea house. The reason was because his team didn’t work with each other and just put down their own idea without discussing. So, his house eliminated from this challenge. Jolena laughed in astonishment to Vuthea house. “I’m sorry because of your manners, your team will eliminate from this challenge too”, said Shiba in a disappointed face to Jolena. But that’s not fair at all. Next time, you will be very careful with your attitude. Ok, let’s find out who will be our winner for this evening. First, Shiba dropped the ball at house 1 rube goldberg, it quite didn’t go well. Then, he went to House 4 station and dropped the ball. It did work well. “So, listen up!”, said Shiba to the crowd. I had the winner’s name in my hand and the winner issssssssssss. Everyone just shout out their house number. The winner goes to House 4. Hiya just jump around with Rita. Malis just cry with Vymin. “Ops! sorry guys, I knock down our rube goldberg when I jumped” said Pili. “It’s okay, the competition is over” cried Yima. Shiba congrat them and then took everyone to cheer for their art teams. On the other hand, the art team worked incredibly crazy. There’s brushes on the table and paint colors. Everyone got paint on their clothes and faces. “Let’s give them a round of applause”, cheer Jimy, the art judge. What is going on? Now that we want to find the winner, please give us five minutes to discuss. “What, we just come and it ends already?”, questioned Malis to Pili. Ordella came by and she said that the other murals are very fantastic and very meaningful. “It’s okay if we lost, because we win on rube goldberg”, said Yimean to Ordella. Seriously, we win? Yes! Wait, I need to go to tell our members. “You guys are beyond our compare”, said Kota. It doesn’t mean that you win the rube goldberg and you get to stay here. You’ll see how will I do that.
“Woa!”, cried Jimi. What an amazing day. Thanks all of you for your volunteer to come to our planet. Now, we know the winner, no I mean winners. “What! you mean that there will be two houses that win? questioned Jolena in confusing tone. “Yes!”, replied Shiba. So, the winners are house numberrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr 3 and numberrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr 4. Then he and Jimy went up and hug House 1 and 2. So, tomorrow house number 1 and 2 will send back to Earth. “Thanks, very much, you taught me a very good lesson today”, whispered Jolena to Shiba. The winners went to Conference Room with Shiba and Jimy. “So, as you know that we only allow one winner to win this challenge”, announced Shiba. You all will participate in another competition to find the only one winner. The judges left with anticipated look. “Luckily, that my house win or else you just face with problems”, said Kota to House 4 girls. “You can’t judge our girls like this”, said Uni. This is a competition that we really want to win, and you will see what will happen next.
[This steam challenge truly happened at my school, LLC. So, I just chose this theme to write about.]
