National Argonaut Program

Since 1990, JASON’s National Argonaut program has engaged over 460 students and educators worldwide in hands-on, scientific field work. Many of these students have gone on to pursue degrees and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Argonauts are named for the crew that sailed aboard the Argo with Jason, the mythological Greek explorer. National Argonauts participate in scientific research with peers and scientists and return to their communities as mentors and role models.

In July 2014, a group of 11 student and educator JASON National Argonauts will travel to the Cape Eleuthera Institute (CEI) on the island of Eleuthera in The Bahamas. There, they will participate in an intensive hands-on research experience with resident and visiting scientists engaged in a diversity of marine science projects. The Argonauts will post about their adventures on the JASON Facebook page during the expedition. For more information, see the press release.
