MESA named a stand out program for next-gen scientists

Hands-on science activities are a hallmark of MESA.

An academic enrichment program that promotes science and math education for educationally disadvantaged youth and which has one of its centers at
Chapman University
, has been named an outstanding program by Bayer.

Bayer has listed the
Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA)
program in its
Compendium of Best Practice K-12 STEM Education Programs
as an outstanding example of a program that effectively educates girls and minority students in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.

MESA partners with institutions of higher education, as well as K-12 schools, to host science and math competitions, teacher training days, field trips and other activities. Chapman’s program serves almost 1,000 middle and high school students in the Orange, Anaheim and Fullerton areas.
