The SITS Brazil team of the GMTaC lab has been preparing over the past few months and is now ready for departure. Tomorrow, a group of MIT grad students will travel to the Brazilian State of Bahia to kick off the second edition of Social IT Solutions Workshop, this time in partnership with the Federal University of Bahia (UFBA) and the State University of Southwestern Bahia. The Social IT Solution workshop asks its participants to think entrepreneurially and to apply their technical knowledge to tackle social issues with human-centred approaches. The participants include 24 Brazilian students (with gender parity) from UFBA and UESB and the classes will take place at both university campuses in Vitória da Conquista e Salvador.
