Each summer the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program hosts four STEM Career Explorations sessions that expose students to a particular facet of science, technology, engineering or math. Throughout the five-day component, students live on the University of Alaska Anchorage campus and participate in hands-on, team-based learning activities.
This year’s sessions highlight health, coding, marine science, and fisheries and wildlife biology through career exploration activities, experiments, projects and field experiences.
This component is an opportunity for students who previously attended ANSEP’s Middle School Academy to gain first-hand insight into the daily life of a STEM professional.
