About the Summer Engineering Academies

The UAA Summer Engineering Academies offer a series of week-long, hands-on instructional sessions for students entering grades 5 through 12 in Anchorage and MatSu. Each academy is designed to encourage interest and provide exposure to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The academies also seek to support historically underserved and underrepresented students who have limited opportunities for these experiences.

The academies are divided into 1-week sessions for middle school (grades 5-8) and high school (grades 9-12). Each week explores a different topic. This year's themes are:

Structural Destruction
Alternative Energy
Wing Aerodynamics
Advanced Structures
Breaking Buildings
Creative Coding 

See this year's schedule.


Academy Fee

Each week-long academy session has a fee of $100 per participant (or $200 for Advanced and/or Game Design sessions).  This fee includes instruction, lunch, and materials.  Fee waivers are available for students with financial need.
