AK Summer Research Academy
The Alaska Summer Research Academy (ASRA), is a program for middle- and high-school students, offered through the University of Alaska Fairbanks. ASRA is open to students who will enter 6th through 12th grades in the fall of the current calendar year.
For more details and applications, please visit the ASRA website.
ASRA takes place on the UAF campus in July. It provides an opportunity for students to work with university faculty, staff and industry professionals using university facilities and equipment. Students choose an academic module and are totally immersed in a single subject for two weeks using a “hands-on minds-on” teaching method rather than lectures and worksheets. Five modules are available for middle school students and four to high school students. One module takes students off campus to a remote area of Alaska for field work and most others offer several day trips for research. Visit the ASRA website to see the full list of modules and descriptions of each. The cost per student is $700 for the two weeks. There are no housing or dorm accommodations for this program.
Camp dates for 2018:
July 23-August 3, 9 am-5 pm
February 1-April 15
