Expanding STEM education in Alaska

School is back in session across Alaska this week, but some programs never took a break. The University of Alaska Anchorage hosts ANSEP – the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program. It aims to get students from middle school through graduate school interested in science and math. It starts with hands-on, practical, and fun educational experiences.  ANSEP recently added two tenure-track faculty members who are both ANSEP alumni, and they join us on the program.
