** 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.
