Last month, the Alaska Native Science & Engineering Program welcomed a cohort of students from Southwest Alaska to participate in the Middle School Academy. This was made possible with support from the Lower Kuskokwim School District and Association of Village Council Presidents.
Team-building activities, campus tours and cultural enrichment are all part of the two-week, residential program. Projects like the bridge build and windmill challenge teach the fundamentals of engineering. Activities like the computer build focus on technology and programming. By interacting with STEM professionals, the students are exposed to a wide variety of career possibilities.
