On Tuesday, July 2, 2019, the Technology-Student Creativity Program (PKM) Team entitled PEMPERS attended a special invitation to do the broadcast in RRI (Radio Republic of Indonesia), the Indonesian government-owned radio station in the Numpang Nampang program. The broadcast which was held at the RRI Makassar studio on Jalan Rmudahe No.3 Makassar was mixed in an innovative talkshow with the theme “Results of Creativity in Technology”This broadcast is attended by the PEMPERS Team from the Faculty of Computer Science (FIKOM), namely Nur Hikmah Amir, Windy Diaztary, Asmal, Hendra Katili and their supervisor Lilis Nur Hayati., S.Kom., M. Eng.

FIKOM UMI succeeded in passing 5 proposals in the Student Creativity Program (PKM) which were funded by the Directorate of Higher Education. One of them is PEMPERS (Pepper Peeler Machine Design). This tool is an effective tool for the agricultural sector, helping partner farmers to make more efficient in workforce, time and cost in the process of stripping pepper and improving the quality of pepper. The expectation after the use of tools by partners is to increase the income of partner farmers.

“We hope that our creative friends (a term for loyal listeners of the Numpang Nampang Program) after this innovative talkshow they know more about PKM that can realize dreams of helping people without thinking about sources of funding and can be motivated to create creativity without any obstacles. “Intend in ourselves friends, if others can, why you can’t?” Said Lilis.
