Announcing MESA Day 2024

We are so excited to announce MESA’s culminating event of the year: MESA Day 2024! The event is an opportunity for all of our middle and high school students to engage in hands-on competition, career exploration, and college preparation. This year we are hosting the event on Friday, May 17th at the Portland State University campus. After showcasing their projects last month at Demo Day, our young inventors will travel from all over the state to participate in engineering challenges centered around the theme of Climate Action: Designing for Environmental Conservation, meet inspiring STEM professionals, visit college booths, and showcase their annual projects.

Volunteer at MESA Day 2024

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 our students’ ingenuity! 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 or keep on reading to learn more. Sign up today!

This year, our College & Career Fair will take place at PSU’s Native American Student and Community Center in the afternoon of Friday, May 17th. We have limited availability and are reserving booths for universities and colleges, as well as our sustaining sponsors or MESA Day sponsors. Email Michela at msottura@pdx.edu if you are interested in sponsoring and would like to learn more about how your support can make a difference for MESA students.
