TecStorm is an Engineering event directed to university students, whose goal is not only to promote the creative, innovative and enterprising spirit, but also the core business of JUNITEC. The first edition took place on March 4 and 5, 2017 at the Instituto Superior Técnico. Teams where composed by three to five members and in twenty-eight hours developed a project based on an idea previously submitted. Subsequently, it was evaluated by a jury that, in turn, decided the three best teams. The evaluation was based on the innovation and applicability of the idea, on the functionality and effectiveness of the prototype and on the pitch during the demonstration and presentation of the results. In this edition, the first prize was awarded to the Mine Hunters project, which consisted of a minesweeper robot controlled by GPS coordinates. Secondly, the Sleepy Readers team was classified, which developed a project with the goal of energy saving through a motion sensor that kept the light on. Finally, the third place was destined to the Estufados project, which was a “smart” greenhouse, that was based on the control of the temperature, humidity and luminosity of a small greenhouse through an application.
