Oregon MESA will be hosting its annual MESA Day on Friday, May 18, 2007, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Portland State University in the Peter Stott Center. MESA students from thirteen schools in the greater Portland area will participate in math, engineering and science competitions, and other hands-on activities. These middle and high school students have worked in teams to prepare their MESA Day projects throughout the academic year.
Competitions and hands-on activities will run from approximately 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., followed by an awards ceremony. More than 250 diverse students in the MESA Program from 13 area middle and high schools will take part in the annual Oregon MESA Day at Portland State University.
MESA Day is a celebration of students' innovation, hard work and interest in science, technology, engineering and math. MESA Day provides an opportunity for 6th-12th grade students to design and build projects, compete against students their own age, win medals, learn by doing, visit a college campus, and interact with diverse college students, professors and industry professionals.
Our partnership with foundations, businesses, and community organizations is an integral part of the MESA student experience. Students consistently report that they enjoy interacting with the adult judges and activity leaders on MESA Day.
