FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

2019 Regional MESA Winners

Huntingtown High was filled with bridges, theme parks and games—all designed by Calvert County students—for the 2019 Mathematics, Engineering, and Science Achievement (MESA) competition, held on April 10, 2019.

Dr. Daniel D. Curry, Superintendent, said, “Congratulations to our students and their coaches. MESA is a great program that makes learning fun.”

Maryland MESA is a grade 3-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics initiative targeting students who are traditionally underrepresented in these fields, specifically minority and female students. Through participation in Maryland MESA, students develop academic and leadership skills, improve their academic performance, and gain confidence in their ability to compete professionally.

MESA participants are judged in four categories: 

Elementary - Scratch, Wearable Technology, Storybook Theme Park, and Wood Bridge;

Middle - Alice, Wearable Technology, Wood Bridge, and National Engineering Design Challenge; and 

High - Cyber Robot, Wearable Technology, Wood Bridge, and National Engineering Design Challenge.

All 1st place winners will proceed to participate in the Maryland MESA State Championship, which will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2019 at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab.
