  Middle School 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. Past module subjects include Math, Robotics, Ecology,      Bacteria and bugs, and many others. 

In its 17th year, admission to ASRA is competitive. Students who apply must complete an essay, provide references and show evidence of sincere interest in participation.
