UTEC or The University of Engineering and Technology, needed a solution to get students interested in applying for an engineering program. They decided to start by changing a local problem. Lima is the second largest capital in the world set on a desert, so the lack potable water is a huge problem. Having in mind that the presence of rain is almost zero, but at the same time the atmospheric humidity is about 98%, this inspired them to build the first billboard that produces drinking water out of air.
