The London City School District is again partnering with JASON Learning to provide a once-in-a-lifetime experience for one London student this school year. Named after the mythical Greek explorers, the Argonaut program is an opportunity for one London Middle School or one London High School student to work with students and scientists from across the country to learn more about Design Thinking, Innovation, and Entrepreneurship. This year’s experience will involve several virtual get togethers this fall before culminating in a three-day expedition to Boston, Massachusetts next spring to visit and learn more about world-renowned research institutes like MIT, biotech manufacturers, and promising startups. While in Boston, Argonauts will collaborate on solving real-world problems and be able to pitch their own products, ideas, and business models to industry leaders. The experience and trip are free to the chosen student and provided as part of the district’s partnership with Jason Learning.
Any Middle School or High School student who is between the ages of 13 and 17 on June 1st, 2021 and demonstrates a strong interest in and ability in STEM, design, or entrepreneurship is encouraged to apply. Students interested in earning this opportunity must complete an application no later than Friday, October 1st. The application includes a quick pre-registration and then a more lengthy application that includes the submittal of a video explaining their interest. Students interested are encouraged to get started on the application immediately! Any student interested in applying should also contact Mrs. Shaw (email@example.com) who will provide small group and individual help sessions for students as they complete their applications and can answer any additional questions.
Good luck Raiders, make us proud!
