Around KMUTT

Challenge Based Learning

Our little field trip around KMUTT

We were given a short ‘field trip’ around King Mongkut’s university of Technology Thonburi on Monday 22nd of October in Gen241 Beauty of Life class. For our group, sub-group 34, we went to the library to listen about history and souvenirs of KMUTT  then we went to vidvawattana building to litening about fan and motor first while.

The souvenirs room of King Mongkut ; is well-docorated with each precious object shown inside a glass box. which is derived by label be inconsistent with King Mongkut’s institute of technology Ladkrabang and King Mongkut’s university of technology north Bangkok.

The crown is an original one; it was used by King Mongkut long time ago. It is beautifully decorated with jewelry and gems.

This is a painting of King Rama 9 ; It is an oil painting full of details and it looks very realistic. The cloth, lighting, and even wrinkles on the face look like they are going to pop out from the painting.

Then, we walked to another room which contains old books and stuff that relates to KMUTT history.

These are the development of KMUTT student uniform from the past up until now. On the upper left corner is a design of the graduation gown. The reason why it’s red  is because the birthday of King Mongkut is on Sunday.

The old electric motor, which can hardly be found anywhere else these days. It can produce up to 30 kilowatt (or about 40 power horse). The motor uses an old technique of magnetic power unlike nowadays that use electronic signals.

The actual fan. It has the diameter of 2.6 meters and it is really old. The fan paddles are long and thin.
