NTU Libraries Engineering Academic Challenge EAC Marathon held Nov 2017

The first NTU Engineering Academic Challenge (EAC) Marathon 2017 was held at Lee Wee Nam Library Seminar Room on 1 November 2017 from 5 pm to 6:30 pm.  Led by the EAC student ambassador, Pae Jian Yi (MAE), 12 NTU postgraduate and undergraduate students answered Week 7’s five challenge questions utilizing their searching skills in Knovel database. Players could view their scores in real-time and prizes were awarded to top scorers playing at the marathon event. Through the event’s activities, players improved their individual ranking, as well as NTU’s ranking, on the institutional EAC Leaderboard. Most students also indicate an improved awareness of the library’s research resources through their participation in the game. The EAC Challenge has been extended until 5 November 2017 so do take the opportunity to play here: https://eac.elsevier.com/
