New Mexico MESA

Building tomorrow's mathematicians, engineers and scientists. . .Today!



Monday, February 24, 2014; 7:30 am - 4:30 pm MESA Day 2014

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.

All of our 2014 events will revolve around our theme of “Sustaining our Future”.  MESA Day will have 3 events and student teams participate in all events assigned to their level (high school or middle school).  Events are:

  • Prepared Design-Food Distribution System
  • Academic Display (HIGH SCHOOL ONLY)-Sustainable Water Management
  • On Site Challenge-Water Harvesting

Teams 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. Please contact Anita Gonzales at for more information.
