What is MESA?
(as explained on the MESA website)
Maryland MESA, a 3-12 STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) initiative, works to identify and support students statewide in order to prepare them to matriculate and graduate from a two-year and/or four-year college or university with a degree in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. Maryland MESA seeks to target students who are traditionally underrepresented in these fields—specifically minority and female students.
Through participation in Maryland MESA, students develop academic and leadership skills, improve their academic performance, and gain confidence in their ability to compete professionally.

MESA at Chadwick
Maryland MESA sponsors regional and state-wide events to
develop and highlight the skills, abilities, and interests of students in math,
science, engineering, and technology. Throughout the academic year, students
conduct research and prepare to participate in competitions that demonstrate to
educators and parents what they have learned through participation in the MESA
program. Right now students are working on four projects for competition:
Theme park Ride
Fifth and fourth graders at Chadwick Elementary have the opportunity to participate in the Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement (MESA) club after school. The students have competed in Baltimore County MESA competitions and placed first! The MESA students have also competed at the state level!
