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 2015 events will revolve around our theme of “Programming in Nature and for the Future”.  MESA Day will have 3 available events and student teams participate in events assigned to their level (high school or middle school).  Events are:

  • Prepared Design-Prosthetic Arm
  • Prepared Programming-Alice Software
  • On Site Challenge-Brain Anatomy

Teams will be composed of 2-4 students and the same students must participate in a minimum of 2/3 events. 4 students per team are suggested due to the work load and difficulty of events. Please contact Anita Gonzales at for more information.
