For over 30 years, JASON Learning’s mission has been “to inspire and educate students everywhere through real science and exploration.” All of us at JASON strive to support this mission every day, through every product and program, for every student that we reach. We know that for too many students—especially those in demographics underrepresented in STEM academic achievement and STEM careers—the opportunities are more limited, the challenges are greater, and the need for access to high-quality resources, effective teaching, and inspirational role models is all the more critical. We at JASON believe that educational opportunity and equity for every student is fundamental and non-negotiable.
To ensure that we continue to fulfill our mission with a strong focus on equity, we have engaged with passionate students, teachers, school administrators, community partners, and STEM role models from across the country who will provide JASON staff and leadership with ongoing guidance on how to achieve this goal with maximum impact and effectiveness. We are excited to announce the founding members of our Equity Advisory Council, led by longtime JASON STEM Role Model Dr. Jendai Robinson. The Equity Advisory Council’s work will also interconnect with JASON’s existing advisory groups, such as our Superintendent Advisory Board and our Scientific Advisory Council.
