To be able to enter the Journal Presentation stage, these two teams need to prepare a journal with an interesting title. In addition, the product from the journal must already exist and product testing has been carried out by means of media validation to 3 experts, namely Material Experts, Media Experts, and Psychology Experts so that the products designed can be right on target. After the presentation stage, the two teams need to improve the journal in terms of content and neatness to be submitted in November.

“This is a valuable experience for Warda and others, during college I never thought of being able to participate in cool activities like this. Alhamdulillah, I’m very grateful to be able to get the opportunity to learn presentations in front of people in foreign languages, even though my English still lacking. Alhamdulillah, the study program is also willing to support by handling registration and other administrative costs. I hope that there will be another event like this, this is recommended for other students.” Said Warda, a member of the Nawasena Team when asked about his impressions and hopes after participating in ICoSMEd 2022.
Congratulations and good luck to both Team Nawasena and Team Amoiba. Hopefully by participating in this activity, it can add to the experience of students to continue to be active in making scientific works that can be useful for the nation and state.
