Yuut Elitnaurviat coordinates the STEM-Ready and Aviation-Ready programs in collaboration with the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program (ANSEP) and the Lower Kuskokwim School District (LKSD). Village Schools are often unable to provide students with higher level math and science classes. Through STEM Ready, college-bound students can complete these math and science classes before graduating. The Aviation-Ready program gives students a chance to complete the Ground School necessary to become a commercial pilot while taking accelerated math and science classes that might not be offered in the village schools.
How it works:
Students from LKSD villages come to Bethel, Alaska and live in a college style dormitory while participating in the STEM-Ready or Aviation-Ready programs. The programs are open to 10th and 11th grade students at LKSD schools, and more information can be found on the STEM Ready website.
