JASON’s Immersion Learning curricula focus on exciting, ocean-themed topics in STEM fields. Each curriculum includes reading selections and hands-on activities for students, lesson plans for educators, and complementary multimedia components.
Immersion Learning is a collection of 8 Ocean Interdisciplinary Adventures designed to help elementary students succeed in science, social studies, math, and literacy while using technology and engineering to explore real world phenomena. Immersion Learning uses articles, videos, and activities to take students around the world. They travel from Monterey Bay’s National Marine Sanctuary to the polar extremes of the Arctic and Antarctica to ancient eruptions and the Titanic to explore the world’s natural resources and the tools and technology scientists use to understand them.
Immersion curricula are designed to be implemented in a wide variety of informal and formal education settings such as after-school programs, summer camps, and elementary school classrooms.
