8th Grade student Noor Mohamed-Salinas was chosen to become the 2017 FBISD Student Argonaut through the Jason Learning Program. Per the Jason Learning website, each year, one student and one teacher is selected to represented FBISD through a generous donation from Chevron to go on an all-expense paid expedition to conduct scientific research. The Argonaut trip is an incredible adventure and can be a true life-changing experience. As such, each spot on the team is highly coveted. Every year students and teachers apply for the program through JASON, competing against their peers around the world for the chance to be on the next JASON Argonaut team. Each student applies through a highly competitive and rigorous selection process, submitting an extensive array of background information that provides testament to their character, dedication, academic abilities, communication skills, and most importantly, enthusiasm for science. Their personal essays, video statements, reference letters, and academic records are reviewed by a committee of JASON staff and FBISD administrators familiar with the program, who score the applications and make the final team selections.
