 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 content. Past module subjects include Biomedicine, Veterinary Medicine, Field Geology, GIS,
 Remotely Operated Vehicles, Civil Engineering, and others.
