  • You can help organize, set up, and clean up our annual Thanksgiving potluck event.
  • You can be an expert consultant for an ASK scholar to help them on their personal research.
  • You can provide an internship opportunity for an ASK scholar if you work at a STEM company.
  • You can support and accompany ASK freshman, sophomores, and staff at our annual Jemez camping adventure.
  • If you are an industrial designer or architect, you can help professionally evaluate ASK CAD designs.
  • You can come speak to engineering, design, and/or biomedical classes.
  • Your STEM company can organize a tour of your facility for our engineering, design, and/or biomedical scholars.
  • You, or your STEM company, could provide ASK a tax-deductible donation through our 501C3 foundation.

MIT Engineering Grant is coming to ASK!

We are happy to share this exciting news. ASK Academy’s Project Manager, Danielle Plomoaritas has joined forces with junior Alexandria Miera, Sean Hurley, our Design Manager, as well as a team of scholars to come up with an idea for the MIT InvenTeam Project.

What, you ask, is the MIT InvenTeam Project? Its mission is to have scholars invent a technological solution to a real-world problem. ASK’s team came up with the idea to design and produce an exoskeletal aid for first responders.This device will be able to collect vitals such as temperature, blood pressure, and the heart rate of a patient.

You can help, too! If you have a design company, engineering firm, or emergency medical knowledge – we could use your assistance. Please contact Paul Stephenson, Director of Engineering and Design, if you are interested in collaborating with ASK Academy students and leaders in this very exciting project. Looking forward to hearing from you.
