This paper presents a Problem-Based Learning activity that introduce machine learning contents in a study plan that is based on electronics and signal processing subjects. The activity proposes students to follow the same evaluation protocols adopted in scientific challenges, where differents research groups test their own machine learning techniques on a common dataset and evaluation metrics. Teams of students adopt the role of a research group to develop their novel solution for classifying images depending on whether they represent a certain semantic concepts. Student must implement software solutions that are tested and presented in class to prove their performance and originalty. This paper includes a detailed evaluation of the workload and satisfaction activity, based on questionaries answered by the students.
