Middle School 01

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.

For more information regarding the University of Alaska Anchorage COVID-19 response plan, please refer to the links provided below:


ANSEP will work directly with partners to discuss plans for rescheduling any Middle School Academies that were moved to this fall.


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 an 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.
