MESA Day is an annual engineering, math and science competition that provides an opportunity for each student to design and build projects, win medals, learn by doing, visit a college campus, and interact with each other. In addition, students get to interact diverse college students, professors and industry professionals. In addition to being a competition, MESA Day is a celebration of students’ talent, hard work and interest in science, technology, engineering and math. MESA Day is also a qualifying competition for the Washington MESA Engineering Design Competition held in April. The top middle and high school teams from each region MESA Day will continue on competing against their fellow Washington MESA students.
