Seattle MESA (Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement); provides middle and high school students — as well as their teachers and parents — innovative, hands-on opportunities in mathematics, basic and applied science, and engineering in both formal and informal settings. With a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) focus, we successfully target underrepresented minorities and women. We also seek to provide this support and enrichment to at-risk and economically disadvantaged youth.
The Seattle MESA mission is to engage a diverse group of students in STEM activities that connect mathematics and science fundamentals to the real world, provide valuable hands-on experience, and show a range of STEM career paths through college and beyond.
Seattle MESA envisions a vibrant, inclusive STEM community of career professionals in greater Seattle that influences how we work, think, and live more responsibly on the land and in the community.
What We Do
Seattle MESA helps students at middle and senior high schools excel in math and science, and become competitively eligible for nation’s the most rigorous colleges and universities. Seattle MESA partners with teachers, administrators, school district officials, and industry representatives to provide this academic enrichment model. Students are selected to participate in Seattle MESA through a process that involves teachers at participating schools and MESA personnel.
