About Seattle MESA
Seattle MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement) provides middle and high school students, teachers, and parents, innovative, hands-on opportunities in mathematics, basic and applied sciences, and engineering. With a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) focus, we successfully target and prepare underrepresented minorities, women, and economically prone students to pursue STEM degrees and careers.
To prepare underrepresented students (African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander, women, and economically disadvantaged) for higher education and STEM careers.
We will end “under” representation in the (STEM) fields through education, opportunities, and partnerships.
What We Do
Seattle MESA helps K-12 students excel in Math and Science, and become eligible for the most rigorous colleges and universities nationwide. We partner 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.
The success of the Seattle MESA Program hinges on broad-based support from its local partners, including businesses, industries, school districts, universities, professional societies, private foundations, community organizations, and individuals. Through its partners, Seattle MESA receives financial, legislative, and in-kind support for programs and capacity building.
Seattle MESA thanks our anonymous donors whose continued support enable STEM provision services throughout the Puget Sound region.
