As students, we can agree that stress gets to the best of us, especially during the examination period. On 29th November 2018, SSIET has organized a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Challenge, which is an apple-stacking mini game. The event provides a path to create critical thinking as well as stress relief. In the game, participants are to build a tower using apples within a given time frame.

At 10.30 am, the committees set up a booth at G-block with tables, computers and banners. The booth was then opened to students and visitors in the campus, with a fee of RM2 per challenge. The participants were allowed to try multiple attempts to get the highest score possible.

All the participants was given a pencil for each attempt. By 2pm, the scores of all attempts were tallied, and the participant with the highest score was announced

The participant with the highest tower was then able to win a 32 GB flash drive drive.

Intel is undoubtedly one of the largest microprocessor companies, and it would be interesting to know what it's like to work in such a company. On 30 October 2018, SSIET partnered with Intel Malaysia (based in Penang) to conduct an Intel Recruitment Drive, presented by Intel Malaysia's representative, Mr. Alex Goon, from the company's Human Resource Department.

During the presentation, Mr. Alex Goon introduced the missions and visions of the company. As an employee of the company, he also got to share some interesting insights on the experience of working in Intel to the students, such as the medical benefits provided, gym facilities, and flexible working hours. In addition, he presented a few videos, highlighting the focuses of the company that relates to current trends. These include Drones and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
