To prepare Hisas 16, the thing that needs to be prepared was presentation material. Adhe applied the knowledge he had gained when attending 31st National Student Science Week (Pimnas).
“I had to prepare everything, starting from introduction, plot, style, and material. The fact that I need to use English, I have to always practice my english skills “he said.
