On Friday, 31st March 2023, the IEEE Power & Energy Society (PES) Student Branch Chapter at the University of Manchester (UoM) hosted her 3rd Virtual Pub Quiz competition on Power and Energy event. This social activity was organized to promote knowledge of IEEE, IEEE PES, and the latest development in the power and energy space among university students all over the world.

On the day, Ms Lois Efe gave a welcome speech as the moderator. Thereafter, Mr Airam Perez Guillen, the chair of the IEEE PES Student Branch Chapter (SBC), gave a brief talk on the vision and mission of the student branch chapter. He also explained some of the importance and benefits of IEEE and IEEE PES opportunities to university students. This session lasted for about 10 minutes.

The power and energy quiz session took place thereafter with a total of 40 questions contended, ranging from IEEE development-related questions to foundational 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 in ensuring fair competition for the prize awards, thus attendees are all fully focused and excited.

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.
