Middle School 02


ANSEP has partnered with the ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp (EMBHSSC) from 2010 - 2017 to offer the ANSEP Middle School Academy as a summer opportunity. Thanks to partnerships with school districts around the state of Alaska, the ANSEP Middle School Academy is also offered during the school year specifically for students from those districts. We are continually developing new partnerships. If interested in how to become an ANSEP Middle School Academy partner district, please contact us at uaa_ansep_msa@uaa.alaska.edu.

Middle School Academy is a two-week experience designed to promote science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education and careers. During this academic and residential academy, students engage in a variety of hands-on activities from building a computer, dissecting squid to testing structures on an earthquake simulation table and much more. Accepted students attend the academy free of charge.

Dates & Location

School Year

School year academy dates are selected by participating school districts. Information is distributed by the school district to eligible students. 


Academies are held on the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) campus at the ANSEP Academy Building. Students will be housed in the dorms on the university campus. All students are required to stay on campus for the duration of the academy.

Summer academy students are responsible for their own travel to and from UAA.

How To Apply

Students currently in 5th, 6th, or 7th grade who have an interest in STEM, a “B” average in math and science, and are on an Algebra I math track are eligible to apply. Middle School Academy is directed towards underrepresented/underserved students.

We would like to announce that we will be hosting a spring Middle School Academy for current Southeast Alaska middle school students. This academy will be held January 12 – January 23, 2019. The application for this opportunity can be found here.
