Pluggpeppen has ended and the team Robotingenjörerna took home victory with no less than 16 309 credits! How did the robotic nerds do that? We asked Adrian Fager.
Congratulations to the victory. How does it feel?
We’re not surprised as we’ve really been at it. But of course it feels great. Especially great to beat the team Fysioterapeuterna when it comes to training.
Did you use any particular strategy?
Not really, we just did as much as we could and collected as many minutes and kilometers as possible. Our education is tough and we’re always achieving when necessary. Our motto is to always be either first or last, and now when we couldn’t be last, being first was the only option left.
Did you train more during Pluggpeppen?
Well, I’ve been training quite a lot since January, almost every day. So when Pluggpeppen started I just kept going. I’ve tried to do something every day, run 10k or cycling. We’ve been pushing eachother and competed also within the team. My ambition was to be in top three.
Do you look forward to the training session with Fannie? She’s really tough.
- Oh, is that so? It’s going to be fun – the question is if she can keep up with us.
Are you cooling down now?
- Absolutely not. I’ve got some goals to reach this summer. There are a few races, and I’ll also bike through Sweden.
Now it’s more important than ever to do some exercise. That’s why we’re launching Pluggpeppen! A competition where you and your fellow programme friends challenge other programmes at MDH by working out and scoring points on an app. Running, yoga, swimming, weight training or going out with the dog – whatever you do you’ll help your team to climb up the table. And not least: pep, challenge and push each other to manage just a little bit more!
The winner is....
Pluggpeppen is an initiative by MDH to, in a pleasant way, inspire the programme students to be more physically active during the pandemic. The competition has now ended. The winning team is Robotikingenjörerna – and Eskilstuna City Mission gets a donation from Volvo CE.
Robotic nerds aim at being first
Right now, the team Robotikingenjörerna are in the lead in Pluggpeppen. What’s the secret behind their success? Did robots hack the system? Hear Emma Jakobsson tell us.
Kinetic energy each Thursday
How do you create community during the pandemic? Lovisa Lind is the Vice President of Mälardalens Student Sport IF that, in association with Pluggpeppen, has initiated running exercise and walks every Thursday night in Västerås.
Emil “Heaton” Christensen supports Pluggpeppen
Esports legend Emil "Heaton" Christensen has had a long-time dedication to health and fitness. Now he is involved in Pluggpeppen, a health challenge for programme students at MDH, with the aim of encouraging more movement and a better digital community during remote learning.
Win a workout with Fannie Redman

Training provides knowledge for life
Focus and discipline are key. To feel good from the training is a bonus. This according to Ahmed Ibrahim, who challenges himself a bit extra in Pluggpeppen.
Excited over Pluggpeppen!
A lot of students already got off the sofa and joined our activity challenge Pluggpeppen! Elin Mellberg is one of the students who took the opportunity to get some extra energy this spring.
