POIC is Professor Ogundipe Innovative Competition. Named after the current VC of the University of Lagos, it is a competition that’s put together to stimulate scientific breakthrough in the Nigerian community by engaging the minds of Nigerian students.
To give people help while denying them a significant part in the action, contributes nothing to the development of the individual. In the deepest sense it is taking, not giving.
Putting this in consideration, the Faculty of Science decided to host her first edition of POIC- PROFESSOR OGUNDIPE INNOVATIVE CHALLENGE.
The challenge is to engage the learning skills of students. It is common knowledge that the most effective means of learning is by actually taking part. As we all know, practical learning is the best kind of learning.
The purpose of the challenge is to stimulate a scientific breakthrough from students in the university.
