Dr. Viola Acoff led a 10-member team from The University of Alabama at the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program (ANSEP) 2018 Dissemination Conference in Anchorage, Alaska, Jan. 17-20.

On the first day, all conference attendees were paired with one of the middle school students participating in the ANSEP sponsored Middle School Academy. The MSA students, who built their own computer the day before, taught the adult conference attendees how to build a computer. The middle school students came from throughout the state of Alaska.
