Have you applied to be a part of JASON’s exclusive Student and Teacher Argonauts program? This is one of the most sought after opportunities in the world of STEM education, and anyone participating in our District Model can apply to be a part of it!
The Argonauts team – named after the band of explorers in Greek mythology who accompanied the hero Jason in his quest to find the Golden Fleece – travel to locations around the world to work directly with JASON scientists, engineers, and other inspiring STEM role models, traveling with them on field expeditions, joining them in their lab or office, or being mentored by them remotely as they develop their own local projects.
In doing so, Argonauts experience authentic, real-world STEM in action, and share their understanding and excitement with their peers in school and throughout their community.
Argonauts collaborate with the JASON team to document and share their expedition experiences with their communities back home and others throughout the world through a mix of photos, videos, blogs, and live events. Expeditions are shared via social media and the JASON website, generating awareness and excitement about their adventures.
Because students and teachers around the world apply for the JASON Argonaut program, an invitation to join the team is highly coveted. What are you waiting for? Get your application in today!
