It is argued that the connection between the activities of teaching, researching and extension as a guiding principle to the quality of the superior education. Although we consider the important links that can be established between only two of those activities, we argue that the articulation of those three activities prevents isolated practices verified in superior education. Guided by that principle, as post-graduation students, we accomplished an intervention in a public local school in João Pessoa (PB). That intervention is presented in this text as an experience that aimed to link scientific discoveries and the educators' and students' understanding about the articulation of gender relationships, violence and electronic games in school. Two central ideas are supported: first, the connection between teaching, research and extension is not still taken into account in practice of many professors in universities, either because in the graduation the emphasis is on teaching, or because in post graduation the emphasis is on research. Secondly, post graduation is an excellent occasion to practice the connection between the three academic activities.
