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.
