In person or via satellite, students engage in project learning through the exploits of Titanic explorer Robert Ballard.
January 3, 2002

Editor's Note: Since this video was produced in 2002, the JASON Project has become a nonprofit subsidiary of the National Geographic Society; the curriculum was completely redesigned in 2007. JASON no longer does anannual satellite broadcast, but both of the newly designed curriculum units have won a number of awards, including the Software and Information Industry Association's 2008 CODiE Award for Best Online Instructional Solution for the free online curriculum Operation: Monster Storms.
