MESA named a stand out program for next-gen scientists

November 23, 2010

Hands-on science activities are a hallmark of MESA.

An academic enrichment program that promotes science and math education for educationally disadvantaged youth and which has one of its centers at Chapman University, has been named an outstanding program by Bayer.

Bayer has listed the Mathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) program in its Compendium of Best Practice K-12 STEM Education Programs as an outstanding example of a program that effectively educates girls and minority students in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math.

MESA partners with institutions of higher education, as well as K-12 schools, to host science and math competitions, teacher training days, field trips and other activities. Chapman’s program serves almost 1,000 middle and high school students in the Orange, Anaheim and Fullerton areas.
