High School ASRA is an intensive, DAY ONLY two-week learning experience for students
with an interest in science, technology, engineering and math. Students study one
subject (module), work in small teams, and participate in project based learning in
a college-like environment. No housing is provided; however, some modules take students
off campus for portions of the ASRA experience to engage in field work.
Module sizes are small with an average of ten students and two instructors. Our instructors
are faculty, graduate students and industry professionals. There are no grades, tests
or homework. Modules are designed to be fun and engaging while offering challenging
Some of our past module subjects include biomedicine, veterinary medicine, field geology,
GIS, civil engineering, archaeology, marine biology and forensics.
