U of Arizona Native American Science and Engineering Program
The Native American Science & Engineering Program (NASEP) is a FREE year-long program (week-long summer program with year-long support) designed to provide Native American, Alaskan Native, and Hawaiian Native high school students with the necessary resources to enroll in college and pursue a career in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
Using Dr. Shawn Secatero’s “American Indian Well-Being Model in Higher Education,” NASEP provides activities aimed at developing students in a holistic manner. Program highlights have included an excursion to Biosphere II, networking with indigenous professionals from IBM and Raytheon, and building a computer “from scratch.”
