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.

Keven shared how he and his wife started the come and how it is growing and will be growing in the future. #jasonlearning #nybll @ Nybll

The all female Design Thinking team had amazing experiences this morning with the team at 360Labs. Alex, Heather, Peter and their amazing team really coached the Argonauts through some practical ideas for furthering their ideas for projects to take back to their communities. We were impressed with their support of women in tech start ups and true genuine support for our ideas. #jasonlearning #360labs @ San Francisco, California

Robotics! This afternoon we got to spend time with the team at Kindred Robitics learning about how they use artificial intelligence, aka AI, to develop robots to solve real world problems. It is amazing what they can do with simple air pressure and smart software. #jasonlearning

This morning we treked over to Google headquarters to meet with Daniel Gierl who is a software engineer. He shared how coding is behind all the things you love and some of the multiple career paths that computer science can lead to.

While the Design Thinking team was on the Stanford campus we connected with a JASON student Argonaut alumni Marshall Hartung! It was great to catch up and he gave the student Argonauts some tips on college life, applying for college and shared a couple of stories from his Argonaut experience four years ago. #jasonlearning @ Stanford University, Stanford, California

Whoa! We are at the mothership for Design Thinking...the d.school at Stanford University. The team got to enjoy a slightly different design thinking experience with Prof. Melissa Miranda. She was inspiring as another amazing person following her passion and exemplifying what it means to be a woman leader. #jasonlearning @ Stanford University

This morning our Design Thinking adventure took us to All Power Labs which hosts Community Submersibles. Everyone got to climb into one or both of the resident submersibles. The goal of this project is to make these submersibles (these are not submarines) available to anyone who is interested in them for research. The bonus was we also visited with a wholistic systems designer who shared how fungi were used to help design the Tokyo subway system. #jasonlearning @ Berkeley, California

Wow! We found Ricardo this morning here at Ceiba Tops. He was one of our guides during the JASON X expedition in 1999!

We were off line for a couple of days where there is no WiFi doing our own research questions and encountering some amazing rainforest critters. The Amazon Canopy Walkway is simply breath taking. We were able to get joy and sunset and sun rise form this wonderful resource. @ Ceiba Tops Lodge, selva amazónica, Perú.
