EDS Goes Exploring

Electronic Data Systems Corp. will help more than 1 million students around the world take part in a collaborative, online learning environment during the 12th annual JASON Project Expedition, held Jan. 29 to Feb. 9 in Hawaii.

The project introduces students in fourth through ninth grades in Europe, North America and Asia to new scientific tools and experiences. It fosters interest in science and technology and helps teachers improve their instruction.

Through the Plano, Texas, company's multiple Internet components, streaming video and other multimedia tools and services, students will interact in real time with the JASON expedition as if they are with about 30 student "argonauts" in Hawaii. Together, they will study the islands' geographies and ecosystems and determine the fate of the islands.

EDS is the founding sponsor providing Internet solutions for the JASON Project, begun in 1989 by Robert Ballard, the scientist who discovered the wreckage of the R.M.S. Titanic.
