Middle School Academy

Updates Regarding School Closures and COVID-19  

There will be no on-campus or in-person middle school opportunities this spring or summer. This spring, middle school students currently in grades 6, 7 and 8 can register for ANSEP STEM Connect by visiting www.ansepmsa.com. For this summer, our team is working to develop alternative opportunities that will also be hosted virtually. We understand these virtual engagements will not replace our traditional ANSEP experiences, but we hope to provide students with STEM opportunities regardless. We will be sharing information and how to get involved as they become available.

ANSEP will work directly with partners to discuss plans for future partnerships.


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.
