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
