The series of events did not stop there, there was also Q&A session from participants to GDP Labs.
Then, this event continue with the meeting between student representatives and the lecturers of the D3RPLA. Here, students can talk freely about their feeling and giving their input & suggestion in order to make D3RPLA have a better process from the student’s point of view.
