In addition to gaining experience and increasing knowledge, the programme aimed to provide opportunities for undergrads to interact and appreciate the surrounding natural beauty.
The first day started at Zip Borneo with the undergrads preparing their military-style camping ground pitching their camp beds as their resting place. They were then given a briefing by Hasnol and the management of Zip Borneo.
They then started their activity by doing abseiling, followed by flying fox. Armed with good safety precaution, every student showed their dedication in every assignment and challenges given.
On the second day, the undergrads had their experience in water rafting at Kiulu River.
