What is MESA? ~¿Qué es MESA?

Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) helps thousands of educationally disadvantaged students to become engineers, scientists and other math-based professionals urgently needed by industry.

MESA provides a unique combination of enrichment activities, hands-on competitions, academic support, industry involvement and a supportive community environment. MESA is nationally recognized for its innovative and effective academic development program for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.

MESA serves middle school, high school, community college and university level students through local centers throughout California. Since its inception in 1970, MESA has had a strong partnership with industry. MESA also partners with all segments of California higher education as well as K-12 institutions. California MESA’s model has been replicated in 12 other states, and is the basis for many other programs.
