Event Report | 2nd Virtual Power and Energy Pub-Quiz

On Thursday, 31st March 2022, the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Student Branch Chapter at the University of Manchester (UoM) hosted their 2nd Virtual Pub Quiz competition on Power and Energy.

This social activity was organised to promote knowledge of IEEE, IEEE PES, and the latest developments in the power and energy space among university students all over the world.

This event attracted 20 registrations and was hosted via the Zoom online meeting platform.

Mr Omoniyi Akinpelumi, the chair of IEEE PES Student Branch Chapter (SBC), welcomed everyone and gave a brief talk on the vision and mission of the student branch chapter. He also explained some of the benefits of IEEE, and IEEE PES opportunities to university students.

The power and energy quiz consisted of 40 questions, ranging from IEEE development-related questions to foundation electrical engineering questions. The Kahoot online application software was used as the quiz platform and hence was used to capture both the correctness and timeliness of answers so ensuring a fair competition for the prize awards.  This kept all attendees fully focused and excited!

The quiz winner and runners-ups were awarded £20, £15, and £10 cash respectively. This event received positive feedback from attendees, with comments including “well-designed”, “fun”, and “informative”.

The IEEE PES SBC at UoM would like to thank all the attendees for their participation and we hope to continue this kind of activity next year.
