Devese has used the JASON curriculum for 5 years and has experienced first-hand, the transformative power of the lessons for students and teachers alike. Devese's experience as a JASON Teacher Argonaut on the Design Thinking Expedition was life altering and gave her another level of inspiration to ensure her students have access to all the world of science has to offer. To meet the needs of diverse socioeconomic backgrounds, she has used JASON to expose her students to the possibilities of STEM as career paths, or for the sheer enjoyment exploration brings. JASON has provided Devese with a relatable and accessible platform, closely akin to her teaching style. This marriage has made technology an equitable experience in her classroom.
