In the morning of August 6th, 2014, at the Employee Training and Recreation Center of Tan Thuan Export Processing Zone, District 7, Ho Chi Minh City, Lawrence S.Ting Foundation and Phu My Hung Development Co., Ltd., in cooperation with Faculty of Electronics and Telecommunications of University of Natural Sciences - Vietnam National University in Ho Chi Minh City, organized “Workshop and Donation of NHV-CAM set to connect microscopes to computers”. The workshop attracted the participation of 150 teachers from junior-high, high-schools, and Universities in the South.

Researched and applied since 2008, NHV-CAM set – developed under the cooperation of Lawrence S.Ting Foundation, Phu My Hung Development Co., Ltd. and Faculty of Electronics and Telecommunications - University of Natural Sciences – has brought along many positive impacts to both education and healthcare industries. Besides helping students to be able to observe small cells on computer screens, it is also an effective device for keeping files and medical records in hospitals. 

In the beginning, this device only had 3 functions and mainly used for experimental subjects, changing the teachers’ perspective about experimental teaching. In particular, the device proved its practical supports for teaching biology in schools, providing students the opportunity to study more effectively, helping teachers save time while imparting more knowledge to students. After 6 years of innovative research, the device has now been upgraded to include 7 functions and can be applied in the fields of health, agriculture, archeology, aquaculture, soil improvement, etc.

During the Workshop, Mr. Nguyen Huong Viet, lecturer of the Faculty of Electronics and Telecommunications, presented 7 functions of the NHV-CAM set, instructing teachers to install and study the programs. He also created a friendly environment for teachers, who are directly using this device, to have the opportunity to exchange, share, and learn from experience as well as giving suggestions and recommendations to improve the device’s effectiveness.

Mr. Nguyen Huong Viet is instructing how to use the set.

Also at the workshop, the Lawrence S. Ting Foundation, Phu My Hung Development Co., Ltd. and the University of Natural Sciences awarded 82 NHV-CAM sets, with a total amount of 410 million VND, to 82 junior high and high schools from Binh Thuan to Ca Mau.

Ms. Nguyen Thi Mai Hong - teacher of Rach Kien High School (Long An) said: “My students and I are very excited to receive this set of equipment. Biology will become more lively and intuitive for students, helping them be more eager about learning. I also would like to express my sincere thanks to Lawrence S. Ting Foundation and Phu My Hung Development Co., Ltd. for sponsoring this meaningful program. It encourages and brings more excitements to both teachers and students in their teaching and learning journey”.

Mr. Phan Manh Huynh - teacher from Le Quy Don High School (Long An) also shared that, with this NHV-CAM, students can now observe teachers’ activities through computer screens without having to glue their sights to the microscope, making the lesson much more vivid.

Ms. Lam Que Chi - Biology teacher of Nguyen Thien Thanh High School, Tra Vinh - said: “The NHV-CAM is really a great assistant for both teachers and students. Thanks to the set, students can now access easier to the samples, and homework becomes more understandable as it is less theoretical, increasing their interest in learning and research. Therefore, in the 30/4 Southern Olympic Contest organized by Le Hong Phong High School for the Gifted, Le Thanh Loan, a student from grade 11A3 of the school won the Gold Medal in Biology”.
