Southeast students complete ANSEP summer program

The Alaska Native Science & Engineering Program (ANSEP) is proud to announce that 17 Southeast students successfully completed their studies in one or more of the program's 2013 summer components.

ANSEP components for middle and high school students aim to advance students in the subjects of math, science and engineering in a fun and interactive way. The goal of the ANSEP program is to inspire students to complete the math and science classes required for a college career in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). This summer ANSEP components hosted a total of more than 200 Alaskan youth.

Each summer ANSEP has four components with competitive admissions in which Alaskan students can participate. The Middle School Academy, held twice over the course of the summer, offers a two-week, on-campus learning program and promotes education in the STEM subjects. ANSEP's Computer Build invites students to assemble computers and earn the right to keep them by successfully completing trigonometry, physics and chemistry by the time the graduate high school. The Acceleration Academy provides high school students a unique opportunity to enroll in college-level courses at University of Alaska Anchorage that are taught by tenured and tenure track professors in the fields of biology, chemistry, geology, physics, engineering and mathematics. Summer Bridge is a component for recent high school graduates that combines two hours of university classes each day with an internship in science or engineering.

"ANSEP components are strategically developed to spark an interest in careers in the sciences and engineering fields and to prepare students for college and beyond," said ANSEP Founder and Vice Provost Herb Ilisaurri Schroeder, Ph.D. "We are extremely proud of these students who made a conscious decision to take a step toward a successful future by attending and succeeding in one of the program's summer components."
