[Unpad Media Channel] The 36th Pekan Ilmiah Mahasiswa Nasional (Pimnas) participants moved into the presentation evaluation stage on Tuesday (28/11/2023) and Wednesday (29/11/2023). The presentation was done in several rooms at the Unpad Jatinangor campus.
Participants who did the presentation were from nine fields of the Student Creativity Program (Program Kreativitas Mahasiswa or PKM) divided into 25 classes.
The Head of the Pimnas 36 judge, Dr. Suherman, conveyed that the order or participants team for the presentation was based on the committee draw. Suherman gave a message to the participants to make themselves ready when being called to present their research results.
Suherman explained that the mechanism of the Pimnas presentation was quite the same as in previous years. The difference was, this year, the poster evaluation was done before the presentation evaluation.
“This year was reversed. The poster evaluation was done beforehand on Monday. Later on Tuesday and Wednesday, the presentation evaluation will take place,” mentioned Suherman.
Then, Suherman delivered that the presentation team could bring a product model if the size and shape did not disrupt the convenience of participants and judges.
“The team has the right to do the presentation with an assisted device, provided that it is to convince the judges or make the presentation better,” said Suherman.
Every team was given 30 minutes for doing the presentation by details, 5 minutes for committee draw and team preparation, 10 minutes for presentation, and 15 minutes for discussion also question and answer with 3 judges.
More than that, Suherman explained that the presentation evaluation was done closely with restricted access to create a supportive environment and atmosphere.
“For the other audiences, there are several spots to watch the live session on the screen, and so on. Maybe later, the committee will upload it on YouTube after the event is finished. However, it is fully becoming the policy of the Unpad committee,” he explained.
Suherman also conveyed that the tension in the contest did not prevent the participants from enjoying Pimnas by establishing connections and friendships with the other Pimnas participants.
“Therefore, I hope that the 525 teams enjoy the event, besides the tension of the competition. You are welcome to relish the Pimnas moments that will not be repeated in another year,” he explained. (art/SA)*
