Based on the creativity, relevance and quality of the work presented, the team “OS POCINHAS”, from the 4th grade of Escola Básica n. : Students will thus receive a science game based on the water theme.

In the second group, from 6th to 9th grade, the winning group was the 7th grade from Escola Básica Tecnopolis, in the Municipality of Lagos.

Due to the victory, the whole class will receive a smartwatch, to better manage their tasks, including those associated with water consumption.
