Acoff leads UA team at ANSEP Dissemination Conference
By Alana Norris
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.
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.
In 1837, The University of Alabama became one of the first five universities in the nation to offer engineering classes. Today, UA’s College of Engineering has more than 5,800 students and more than 150 faculty. In recent years, students in the College have been named USA Today All-USA College Academic Team members, Goldwater, Hollings, Portz, Boren, Mitchell and Truman scholars.
