An equitable STEM future starts here.

Oregon MESA equips teachers to help underserved middle and high school students excel in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) through hands-on invention education.

With our programs, more marginalized and low-income students not only graduate from high school, but also enroll in post-secondary studies and enter the workforce with STEM, 21st century and invention skills — fueling the innovation economy with diverse, talented leaders.
