JASON Expeditions

This award winning, supplemental science and technology curriculum is designed for 4th to 9th grade classrooms. Aligned to national and state standards, this hands-on, inquiry based science and technology program takes classrooms on a virtual expedition to build the skills of a scientist. Life Science, Earth and Space Science, Physical Science, and Technology are the core disciplines. Language Arts, Art, Social Studies, and Mathematics are woven into the fabric of each expedition.

Follow a team of leading scientists, specialists, and students to explore the Disappearing Wetlands of Louisiana, Panamanian Rainforests at the Crossroads, and the Mysteries of Earth and Mars. For each expedition, educators will prepare to engage students in unique laboratories to focus on the research, monitoring, and management of interconnected systems. Through hands-on activities inside and outside of the classroom, we’ll model the work of researchers, transferring knowledge from the expedition site to our own local environments.

Each expedition is guided by the following questions:
What are Earth’s dynamic systems?
How do these systems support life on Earth?
What technologies are used to study the Earth-Space systems and why?
