About the UAA Summer Engineering Academies

The UAA Summer Engineering Academies are a series of week-long, hands-on instructional day camps for students entering grades 3 through 12 from Anchorage and Mat-Su, or from all across Alaska for our virtual camps. Each academy is designed to encourage interest in and provide exposure to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The academies also seek to support historically underserved and underrepresented students.

The academies are divided into 1-week sessions for elementary, middle, and high school students. Each week explores a different topic, including robotics, computer programming, structures, and other engineering fundamentals. Each session is designed to be fun and educational, with ample support provided by the College of Engineering's faculty and staff, who serve as Lead Instructors, and engineering students, who serve as Assistant Instructors. On average, there are 7 students per staff member, allowing for a great deal of one-on-one and small group support. 

Above all, the academies prioritize learning, fun, and safety

Academy Fee

For our standard in-person camps, each week-long academy session has a fee of $200 per participant. This fee includes instruction, lunch, and materials. Fee waivers are available for students with financial need, reducing the cost to a total of $25.
