Good Luck MESA

Local student’s hand-made “car" to compete in regional Math, Engineering, Science event April 25th
 On Saturday, April 25, Campbell sixth grader Samantha Romero will be joining more than 500 middle and high school students at California State University, Chico to showcase their innovative science, math and engineering projects. The Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement (MESA) Schools Program is an academic preparation and math/science enrichment program administered by the University of California. The April 25th event will determine state titles.
Samantha earned her spot at the Chico State regional competition because her mousetrap-powered car won first place for being the fastest to travel 5 meters at the local MESA Day event at SJSU last March. She was one of 14 Campbell Middle School students who competed with guidance from math teacher Pedro Garcia and science teacher Richard Timpson.
“Campbell Middle School’s MESA class really builds students’ understanding of the application of mathematics and science through the vehicle of engineering,” said Principal April Mouton. “Students have a real-life opportunity to experience design thinking, collaboration, creativity, and presentation skills.”
According to data from San Jose State University, 60 percent of MESA students go on as math, science or engineering majors.
The MESA Schools Program assists students in increasing their educational performance, and becoming better prepared for a college and university education and helps students expand their math and science knowledge, and learn more about the exciting career opportunities in related fields. It is funded by the state legislature, industry contributions and grants that support MESA centers at public and private universities throughout the state.
