Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak arrived in Israel this week to participate in the EduAction Forum, an annual education conference that kicks off at the start of the school year.
 

The Holon-based conference, held on Monday, focused on Israel’s school system and attracted the likes of top government officials, entrepreneurs and techies. The Israel National Lottery sponsors the event.
Since he left Apple in the mid-1980s, Wozniak remained active in hi-tech but also turned to education, teaching computer classes to middle-schoolers, pro bono.
 
He is currently the chief scientist at a Utah-based tech company Fusion-io.
 
Other prominent guests that attended this year’s event were former president Shimon Peres, Education Minister Shai Piron and Science, Technology and Space Minister Yaakov Peri.
