Maryland MESA Logo

Maryland MESA, a 3-12 STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) initiative, works to identify and support students statewide in order to prepare them to matriculate and graduate from a two-year and/or four-year college or university with a degree in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. Maryland MESA seeks to target students who are traditionally underrepresented in these fields—specifically minority and female students. 

Through participation in Maryland MESA, students develop academic and leadership skills, improve their academic performance, and gain confidence in their ability to compete professionally.

This year's regional MESA Tournament will be on March 26, 2018 at Morgan State University.
