Brief Session Description: Let's face it: learning STEM skills can be hard! Most students need a solid foundation of motivation to develop and master the mindsets that lead to long-term STEM interest and achievement. Since its founding 30 years ago by ocean explorer Dr. Robert Ballard, JASON Learning has been on a mission to provide that motivation, inspiring students to learn through curriculum and programs based on real science and real-world challenges, featuring real STEM professionals as mentors and role models.
Learn how JASON infuses all of this into its in-classroom content, community challenges, field research expeditions, and design thinking travel experiences to create a district-wide "culture of STEM" that supports all students in their quest for stem literacy.
