Dr. LeeAnn Fishback demonstrates how to don our mosquito insect protection gear. She is the principal investigator for the research we are doing with JASON Learning and Earthwatch.

Science education for the 21st century! Connecting kids to real explorers and real science to motivate interest in STEM fields. We are a non-profit organization that connects students, in the classroom and out, to real science and exploration to inspire and motivate them to study and pursue careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

We embed exciting STEM professionals and cutting-edge research into award-winning, standards-aligned in and out-of-school curricula. Live webcasts connect students with inspirational STEM role models. Student materials include reading selections with read-to-me functionality, inquiry-based labs, videos, and online games. For teachers and informal educators, we provide lesson plans, assessments, and comprehensive professional development programs.

Join us April 6 @7pm EDT: Discover JASON’s Geometry unit ARGO Math titled "Here's Looking at Euclid" to honor the Greek scholar and the mathematician. Euclidean geometry, the study of plane (two-dimensional) figures and solid (three-dimensional) figures comes alive as students solve a real-world challenge of designing a tiny, energy efficient home. This session focuses on surface area and volume of three-dimensional objects. Segments of ARGO Algebra will also be pulled into to support geometry concepts of symmetry and transformation and properties of quadrilaterals. Best practices for implementation - and hybrid or remote delivery are modeled and shared. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/argo-math-geometry-high-school-registration-134526716029

Don't forget to register for tomorrow's webinar! Registration link: https://lnkd.in/gfJ-vaZ

Register for JASON's upcoming webinar with AASA, on Thursday, April 1st, 2-3pm EST. With AASA and Standard for Success, we have created a credentialing program as a tool and resource that will help districts self-assess their programming to continue to improve, incorporating key STEM components, and creating the opportunity for districts to learn best practices from one another. JASON believes that STEM is more than understanding subjects It includes habits of mind that are vital in the years of K-12 - creativity, observation, communication and persistence. Districts that employ all these components prepare children for a lifetime of innovation. Register to learn more about our credentialing program!

On Tuesday, 3/30, 7-8:30pm EST / 6-7:30pm CST, join entomologists and educators Kristie Reddick and Jessica Honaker (aka The Bug Chicks) as they introduce you to Feeling Fear, a unit where arthropod science meets social emotional learning. Explore why insects, spiders and other arthropods behave the way they do, and follow along with a student's personal journey from fear to fascination. You'll also get to meet some of their live arthropod ambassadors and experience them up-close with our digital microscopes! This lesson will help challenge your students' perceptions of themselves, others and the natural world. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/feeling-fear-grades-6-12-registration-134452670557

JASON's newest Early Childhood tile focuses on gardening because there is no concept as relevant to a young child as growth. "How tall am I?" "What can I do when I am one year older?" "How big is my footprint in the mud?" The magic of change is always present in their lives. There is no STEM topic that could be more fascinating than the growth of living things around them.

Gardening is the ultimate interdisciplinary experience. It brings together art and science, bounty and beauty. They blossom because of water, wind, and weather, and because of the care of gardeners young and old. Get ready to grow with Ecology — STEM and Bloom! https://gated2.jason.org/CurriculumDetails/32405
