During the first day of the event, students participated in various ice-breaking & team-bulilding activities. Students had a chance to work together to create the bonds among them.
We started off with our first activity, which was the self-esteem program! The trainers of the program had organized various bonding games to kick start the day! After that, the trainers gave us a talk on self-concept which consists of self-esteem, self-worth and self-efficacy.
A booklet entitled 'The Absorbent Mind' was given to us and we had to guess what the acronym G.R.A.C.E stands for. Can you make a guess?
Did you manage to guess what G.R.A.C.E stands for? Here are the answers!
The final activity of the program was a ring toss game. We were grouped by the trainers into groups of 10. Before we could start tossing, each team had to send out 2 players to toss the rings. Each time a player successfully tosses a ring around the peg, the team would be rewarded with points. Points are given depending on which marker the player stands on at the start point. The points range from 4 to 8 where point 4 is much nearer to the peg and 8 being the furthest. During each round, each team needs to do 10 squats to boost up the team's strong mind, will, and power!
After a long streak of activities, lunch time has finally arrived and we enjoyed the feast!
After lunch, Mr. Clarence Ng gave us a speech on elevator pitch. It is about giving a short speech to an important person about your product and its value proposition within a short period of time in the elevator. If the conversation turns out well, your client might exchange his/her business card with you and might even consider purchasing your product. The talk has the same concept when it comes to presenting our assignment to the lecturer.
In other words, we would want to successfully sell our assignment to the lecturer in hopes of giving us an A!
