Celebrating 35 years of vibrant connections

Since 1985, Oregon MESA has invested in the potential of diverse young people. We strive towards a future where all students - no matter race, gender, economic status, or zip code - can have the opportunity and preparation to succeed in the STEM fields and enter the innovation economy. To achieve a more equitable Oregon, MESA employs invention education to empower students of color, low-income youth, and girls to achieve academic success and college enrollment.

MESA’s work is critical to advancing invention education. It gives young people more creative confidence, unleashes their thinking about ways to advance positive change, and maximizes their personal potential. That leads to a smarter, stronger Oregon.
