About Us

Who We Are

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 and prepare underrepresented minorities, women and economically at risk students to successfully pursue STEM related degrees and careers.


To prepare underrepresented students (African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander, women, and economically disadvantaged) for higher education and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).


We will end “under” representation in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields through education, opportunities, and partnerships.

What We Do

Seattle MESA helps K-12 students 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.
