EDUConnect was a 2-day education-themed trek sponsored by the Lemann Center at Stanford. On Sept. 26th-27th, 25 Brazilian graduate students from some of the top universities in the US (Stanford, Columbia, Harvard, Yale, MIT, Berkeley, and Caltech) gathered in the Silicon Valley to debate the future of education in Brazil, and visit schools, technology companies, start-ups and venture capital firms. The event's participants also had the opportunity to debate relevant topics on Brazilian education with Prof. Martin Carnoy, Prof. David Plank, and Prof. Paulo Blikstein.
