Important Fall 2020 Update

This fall, the University of Alaska Anchorage will remain in Phase B of the University System's COVID-19 response plan. Since we cannot safely host students on campus as we would under normal circumstances, we are virtually launching a FREE and new opportunity called ANSEP STEM Connect. By participating, students will connect with STEM professionals and students from all over Alaska, receive ANSEP swag, and have the chance to win prizes and be entered into an ANSEP Computer Build drawing!
This opportunity does NOT replace our regular in-person academies. We hope to resume normal operations and host in-person academies as soon as it's safe for students.
