Jason Pittman is a national award-winning science teacher, storyteller and adventurer. Jason served as Dr. Robert Ballard’s Educator at Sea. Jason’s sold out performances at Washington DC’s Kennedy Center and Story League productions have brought support and awareness to the importance of science education.

After deep cuts to science education programs, Jason brought his story to the stage and audiences responded, selling out multiple runs of Dr. Science’s Science Time Science-va-ganza with Adam Rueben, and winning DC’s annual storytelling tournament.

After an appearance on “This American Life” with Ira Glass, Jason became master curriculum designer at Khan Academy’s first brick-and-mortar school. He continues to build classrooms, explore the natural world and entertain audiences.

Science exploration and education is my passion! How can I help you bring science to the public?
