Middle School ASRA
The Alaska Summer Research Academy program is currently suspended.
For information on other science opportunities for children and teens, visit https://alaska.edu/k12outreach/index.php
ASRA is an intensive, two-week DAY ONLY (housing is not provided) 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.
Module sizes are small (usually 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 content.
Some of our past module subjects include air pollution, math, permafrost, robotics, ecology, bacteria, bugs, and chickens.
Here are our module offerings for middle school students in 2019
Re-enacting the Wild and Weird Nature of Things (for students entering 7th and 8th, 9th and 10th grades)
