FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

2018 MESA Winners

Congratulations to St. Leonard Elementary, Southern Middle, and Calvert High for winning the overall titles in the 2018 Calvert County Mathematics, Engineering, and Science Achievement (MESA) competition.

Dr. Daniel D. Curry, Superintendent, said, “This is a great program that our children love. Congratulations to all.”

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, Effective Communications, Storybook Theme Park, and Wood Bridge;

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

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

The overall winner is granted to the team with the best combined score of all competitions, excluding the National Engineering Design Challenge (NEDC). The NEDC is a stand-alone competition with a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winner. 

The 1st place NEDC winner and the Overall Competition winner from each level will proceed to participate in the Maryland MESA State Championship, which will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab.
