The JASON Project
JASON Learning is a highly rated, exploration-based program that connects students to real science and scientists through inquiry-based, technology intensive projects and learning. This resource can inspire and motivate students to study and pursue careers in STEM related fields.
National Geographic and the Sea Research Foundation are project supporters.
A Passion for Science
JASON Learning was founded in 1989 by Dr. Robert D. Ballard, the oceanographer and explorer who discovered the shipwreck of RMS Titanic.
Within months, he received thousands of letters from middle school students asking to join his next expedition.
Dr. Ballard knew his discovery had tapped a wellspring of curiosity and excitement about science and was determined to feed it.
