Seward hosts Jason project

The Jason Project, an international online education program, will be at the Alaska SeaLife Center for two weeks beginning Monday. Bob Ballard, the famous undersea explorer, and an international group of scientists, teachers and students will be in Seward to conduct live Internet programs on the theme "Frozen Worlds."

During the visit, the center will offer special programs for visitors, including guest lectures and opportunities to watch Web casts.

Student admission will be reduced to $2 during the period, with special arrangements available for student groups. Regular admission is $5.

People also can watch the shows through streaming video on the Internet. Videos of the programs will be produced for later sale at the center's store. In Seward, Channel 20 will broadcast them.
