K-12 students and their teachers are trained to compete to solve serious community level problems. Start a team at your school, or sponsor experts as mentors – there are a lot of ways to get involved for kids across our state.


Your 100% tax-deductible donations equip our youth with the necessary educational supports and exposure they need to make change in their lives.


Bring project based learning to life for 6th-12th graders. We provide curriculum modules aligned with NGSS and Common Core standards, easy to class examples and STEM undergraduate students assigned to your school. Turn your entire classroom into project teams for year round activities. Compete if your students are ready. Register here for 2019!


If you’re interested in solving important community problems, MESA can help you invent solutions. Learn how to do research and design prototypes in your own school, and partner with some of the best students in the country.
