Volunteer for MESA Day 2023

We are thrilled to announce that our 2023 MESA Day is happening on Friday, May 19th at Portland State University! MESA Day is our culminating event of the year where our middle and high school students engage in hands-on competition, career exploration, and college preparation.

After recently showcasing their projects at Demo Day, over 400 of our young inventors will travel from all over the state to meet inspiring STEM professionals, visit college booths, and participate in challenges centered around the theme of Climate Action: Designing for Environmental Justice.

While MESA Day isn’t open to the public, we hope you will join us as a volunteer! Joining us as a volunteer is the perfect way to support our mission of a more equitable STEM future and get a front row seat to witness invention in action!  You can bring your company or organization to MESA Day, and join us with your team with an exhibitor booth, or you can explore the wide variety of individual roles and shifts we are offering our MESA volunteers. Check out our volunteer form to learn more. Sign up today!
