 JASON Argonaut Program

A major component of each JASON Project is the Argonaut Program.

Every year, 26 to 30 students and six to eight teachers from around the world are involved in hands-on research with Dr. Robert Ballard and the JASON host researchers. Students must be 14 or 15 years old at the time of the expedition to qualify. Both teachers and students are required to apply through their local Primary Interactive Network (PIN) Site by submitting a lengthy written application and participating in a personal interview. Finalists are forwarded to the national JASON Foundation for Education for final selection.

For JASON XI, we are proud to introduce Rachel Owen of Colorado Rocky Mountain School as the Student Argonaut representing the Denver Museum of Natural History. Rachel participates in the JASON Project through the Museum's network site, the Science Outreach Center in Carbondale, Colorado. Rachel will be joining the JASON XI expedition team during the first week of this year's broadcast.
