Middle School 02

Important Update

In light of concerns around travel and community gatherings because of COVID-19, there will be no in-person Middle School Academies or STEM Career Explorations this summer. As an alternative option, ANSEP plans to invite applicants that would have joined us on campus this spring and summer to engage in our series of STEM challenges. For more information click here .

ANSEP will work directly with partners to discuss plans for rescheduling. 

The April 17 STEM Career Exploration selection notifications are postponed. We hope to send out notifications as soon as possible. 


For current fifth, sixth, seventh or eight graders. Join us on the UAA campus and experience science and engineering like never before. At Middle School Academy, you’ll take part in cool, hands-on projects and work with real science and engineering professionals.

Middle School Academy students will:

  • Learn more about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)
  • Work on science and engineering projects with professional scientists and engineers
  • Learn how math and science are used in real-world careers
  • Build a computer
  • Live like a college student on a college campus
