ANSEP program to visit Sitka

An Anchorage-based program is traveling to Mt. Edgecumbe High School in Sitka this weekend to teach students science and engineering concepts, including how to put together a computer.

The Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program is holding its Computer Build event Saturday and Sunday in the science wing of Mt. Edgecumbe High School.

Twenty Mt. Edgecumbe students are slated to participate in the event.

According to a media advisory sent out Wednesday, students who complete chemistry, physics and trigonometry coursework by the time they graduate from high school will be able to keep the computers they build.

ANSEP aims to boost the number of incoming Alaska Native college students who are “engineering-eligible.”
