Alberto Santos Dumont Education and Research Institute

The mission of the Santos Dumont Institute is to promote education for life, forming citizens through connected actions in Education and Research, and to contribute for the transformation of the Brazilian social reality. Drawing its inspiration from an iconic figure in the history of aviation, Santos Dumont, who conquered the skies and offered his invention to the world so that everybody could fly, the Institute provides education and science, which are both essential to the formation of citizens who are conscious of their roles as protagonists in that transformation process.
