Computer Assembly


Student builds computer

Creating excitement and empowerment around careers in engineering and science.

What is the ANSEP Computer Assembly?

The Alaska Native Science & Engineering Program (ANSEP) Computer Assembly is the spark that illuminates a vision of a career in engineering or science for our high school students.  Each participating student assembles a top-end computer and earns the right to keep it by participating in an additional ANSEP Component and successfully completing chemistry, physics and trigonometry with a “C” or better by high school graduation. Computer Assembly students are academically ready for university-level engineering and science coursework when they arrive at the university, and they are now arriving in unprecedented numbers.

Who should apply to the ANSEP Computer Assembly?

The ANSEP Computer Assembly supports current High School Students that are historically underserved or underrepresented with limited opportunities who:

  • Are interested in pursuing a STEM degree;
  • Are committed to participating in ANSEP Components as they are eligible;
  • Are on track to complete Trigonometry, Chemistry, and Physics by high school graduation;
  • Plan to attend the University of Alaska (UAA, UAF, or UAS)

Where and When will the ANSEP Computer Assembly occur?

The following computer builds have been scheduled to take place:

Mt. Edgecumbe High School (MEHS)

January 17-18, 2015

Lower Yukon Kuskokwim School District (LKSD) – STEM Ready
