After the speech by the Dean of FMIPA UI, the participants attended a motivational training. The training is based on the development of identity, self-concept and quality of self. The goal is that participants fully understand the process of forming personality that is more noble and positive.
In addition, various dance performances were also presented as entertainment for the participants. One of them is nirboyo dance. The dance was chosen because it was considered to represent the values valued by the Indonesian people, namely passion, friendship and harmony.
The second day, the participants took part in outbound activities. On the Wonogondang Campsite on the slopes of Mount Merapi continued with the Merapi Lava Tour and a visit to Prambanan Temple.
The participants formed a team, each team consisted of 10 people and guided by one instructor. The instructor directs and explains to the team that he guides about the mission of a game that must be completed. The games include walking on stilts, moving marbles using pipes, flying fox and paintball.
But before the participants start the missions, they are required to make lively yells by inserting the words “FMIPA UI” and “Yogyakarta”. Each team favored themselves through the yells. The time for the team to create a very short yell, the committee only gave less than 5 minutes. So many teams are nervous and unprepared when they have to show their yells on stage, as a result this action also invites the other team’s laughter.
Through cooperation, all activities run smoothly and lively. Serious but relaxed and the participants got together in jokes and laughter. The cohesiveness of each team was assessed by the committee to be announced as the champion on the peak night of the event.
This outbound activity is not just educational, but also fun and can help the team learn from each other how each person thinks, works, solves problems, and has fun.
2. Merapi Lava Tour

The journey from the wonogondang campground to the Kaliadem Bunker is taken by using a special vehicle for the off road.
This is a memorable new experience for the participants. Jeep car tour with off road crossing explores the area around the cold lava flow and hot ash eruption of Mount Merapi during the eruption.
Although the weather during the day was very hot, it did not discourage participants from visiting the building that served as a temporary refuge. This is because the scenery around the Kaliadem Bunker is very pleasing to the eye.

Not a few participants who were afraid of falling and being thrown when the jeep accelerated. But the participants still enjoyed the fun experience that was fun and adrenaline at the same time.
