MESA CON BUILDS EXCITEMENT FOR WHAT'S AHEAD

At Rialto High's first MESA Day of the year, Mr. Thompson (MESA Advisor) shared the projects our students are working on that will go on to compete in future competitions, including at UC Riverside and a MESA event at Knotts Berry Farm. Students and families were able to participate in STEM activities and learn more about Engineering and Physics.

WHAT IS MESA?

STEM.jpgMathematics, Engineering, Science Achievement (MESA) is an academic preparation program for pre-college, community college and university-level students. Established in 1970 in California, the program provides academic support to students throughout the education pathway so they will excel in Math and Science and ultimately attain four-year degrees in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM) fields. The program has successfully been replicated in over a dozen other states.

MESA FLASHBACK: "TEAM VED" EMERGES VICTORIOUS IN SEAPERCH COMPETITION LAST SPRING

On March 19th, three Rialto High School MESA teams competed against a dozen other high school teams in the regional Seaperch Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) Competition hosted by The Science Experience and the U.S. Navy. They had to design, build, and test a device to retrieve orbs, complete an obstacle course in the shortest time and give a formal presentation about their project. Our Knights persevered through unexpected challenges to complete each task. Please congratulate the following students for their victory:
 
Third Place - Team VED
