About MESA


National MESA Competition

Each year, Maryland MESA supports the attendance of eight middle and high school students at the National MESA Competition. Students demonstrate their knowledge and compete in science-, math-, and engineering-related events while presenting oral presentations, technical papers, and academic displays. Students also have the opportunity to interact and share ideas with MESA students from around the country.

Advisors Summer Workshop

The Advisor's workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, August 6, 2015 at JHU/APL.

2014 Fall Saturday Scholars' Program

The Saturday Scholars’ Program is designed to give Maryland MESA students an opportunity to explore various areas of interest in mathematics, science, engineering, and technology in a fun, engaging academic environment. Each session includes hands-on STEM experiments, research, competitions, and much, much more. See the Activities page for details.

Summer Programs

Maryland MESA partners with local universities and industry organizations to offer summer programs at different locations throughout the state, in which students participate in hands-on activities and research. Included in the curriculums are workshops and classes in science and mathematics, engineering, computer programming, communication and study skills, and career planning. These programs also include guest speakers and field trips to science- and engineering-related sites.
