The NM MESA, Inc., Annual Statewide Math and Science MESA Day is designed to encourage the concept of problem solving through teamwork. It salutes NM MESA students for their commitment to academic excellence and reinforces the NM MESA mission of preparing students from historically underrepresented ethnic groups for college majors and careers in math, engineering and science. In keeping with our mission, advisors are encouraged to assemble teams that are representative of the ethnic and gender diversity of their school and MESA enrollment.
MESA Day will have 3 events which are offered during Shifts 1, 2, 3, and 4. Student teams will compete in all events. Each team will be composed of 2-4 students and the same students must participate in all events. 4 students per team are suggested due to the work load and difficulty of events. Events are: Prepared Design, Oral Competition, and an On Site Challenge.
