M.E.S.A.

Math, Engineering, and Science Achievement

M.E.S.A. stands for "Math, Engineering, and Science Achievement."  It is a national program with a strong state program to back it up.  The intent of the program is to encourage "under-represented" elements in the population to consider careers in the technical fields.  Basically, that means encouraging minority and female students.

Our program is based on four elements:  help with academic issues at CHS, visits to local technology-related businesses (to see what's out there) and state and local contests to practice engineering skills.  At CHS, we host a couple of contests for middle school students and help other schools with their contests.

  • Student Involvement
  • Parental/Guardian Support
