  • The 2019 Southside Argonauts

    According to Greek mythology, the original Argonauts were a group of adventurers who traveled with Jason on his quest to find the Golden Fleece. Our name came from the name of their ship, the Argo, and the ancient Greek word for sailor, "nautes." This may remind you of the word "Astronaut" which comes from the Latin prefix "astro-," meaning space, and the suffix "-naut," meaning sailor.

    In 2019, the Southside Argonauts were a group of middle and high school students on a quest for knowledge. Based at the Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce, the team was organized by Chamber's Success Foundation and competed in STEM-focused competitions such as the 2019 NASA ANGLeS Challenge. Together with their robot, R-GO, the Argonauts strive to do their best and achieve their goals as a team.

    As we enter 2020, the 2019 Southside Argonauts have become Mentors for the next generation of students joining the Chamber's 2020 Workforce Exploration Program.
