One of the notable accomplishments of the collaboration was that Chloe Lam and Chew Si Ting, representing Team Plan C, were shortlisted as one of the top 10 teams for the Singapore national final. The finals presented an arena of knowledge exchange, thanks to the attendance of several esteemed judges who graciously shared their perspectives. Among them were Ms Jamie Lee, Deputy Director of Programmes at Youth Corps Singapore, and Mr Koh Yi-Huak, Deputy Director of Data and Analytics at the Higher Education Planning Office from the Ministry of Education. Mr Anil Bhaskaran, Presales APJ leader at SAP Singapore, Ms Mehreen Tenvir, Programme Manager at The Asia Foundation in Singapore, and Mr Veerappan Swaminathan, Founder and Director of Sustainable Living Lab Singapore, also contributed their substantial expertise to the event. Their collective insights enriched the depth of the competition and offered participants unique viewpoints on the practical applications and innovations within data analytics and societal impact.

Chloe and Si Ting, pitching their 'Green Society for All' proposal, aimed at bolstering renewable energy consumption across ASEAN.

On the heels of this achievement, Chew Si Ting shared, "Overall, it was an insightful experience because we get to hear from other remarkable teams and their innovative ideas. I gained knowledge regarding the different United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDG) and learned to navigate SAC to develop a storyboard.”

Chloe Lam recounted her experience, “The most memorable experience was the live presentation during the national finals. We were able to pitch our idea to judges of various backgrounds and we also had the opportunity to see and learn more about the other ideas proposed by other students.”
