JASON Live Events

Meet REAL STEM Role Models

Ask Questions

Open to the Public

JASON connects youth with inspiring science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) role models via our live, interactive webcast series. Our role models put a human face on STEM careers, and show how STEM fundamentals students learn about in class are applied in real world situations. Each role model shares their passion for their field and their job, tells stories about the path they took to get where they are today, and provides details about their day-to-day experiences as scientists and engineers.

All of JASON’s live events are free and open to the public. Participants may submit questions for our STEM role model guests before and during each live event. Information on how to do so can be found on the landing page for each event. On-demand video archives of each live event are available for later viewing here and on JASON’s YouTube channel.
