2021 Calvert County MESA Winners

The Calvert County Public Schools Mathematics, Engineering, Science, and Achievement (MESA) competition typically fills the Huntingtown High gym with bridges, theme parks and games—all designed by Calvert County students. This year, thanks to the dedication of the school sponsors, the competition was held virtually, with students working together via online platforms. Projects were completed and submitted online, and the winners were announced during a virtual awards ceremony.

Dr. Daniel D. Curry, Superintendent, said, “We are so grateful to the sponsors of our extracurricular activities for their creativity and dedication. They have moved clubs online to continue giving students enriching experiences.”

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 School – Mobile App Challenge, Wearable Technology Challenge, Expanding Structure Challenge, and Storybook Theme Park Ride Challenge

Middle and High School - Mobile App Challenge, Wearable Technology Challenge, Expanding Structure Challenge, and National Engineering Design Competition

All 1st place winners will proceed to participate in the State MESA Day Competition that will be held virtually at the John Hopkins Applied Physics Lab on May 1, 2021.
