Washington, DC, Oct. 8, 2010 -- The JASON Project, an internationally recognized science program for middle-school students and an affiliate of National Geographic Society, today announced that Sea Research Foundation, Inc. has assumed management of its operation.
Founded in 1989 by oceanographer and explorer Dr. Robert D. Ballard, JASON has connected over 11 million students with scientists through classroom learning experiences and hands-on exploration. The non-profit organization, headquartered in Ashburn, Virginia, has been an affiliate of National Geographic since 2005. JASON announced earlier this year that it would transition to independence by the end of 2010.
