SW Wash. MESA hosts Summer Science and Engineering Camp

VANCOUVER – Southwest Washington Math, Engineering and Science Achievement (MESA) will host its third annual Summer Science and Engineering Camp in partnership with Saturday Academy at Washington State University Vancouver from July 13 – July 17.
Classes will be offered to seventh through ninth grade students from Jason Lee, McLoughlin, Cascade and Wy’East middle schools in Marine Biology, Chemistry, Engineering, Robotics, Game Maker and Forensic Science. 

The MESA Summer Science and Engineering Camp will draw students into hands-on, real-world activities that create meaningful connections between academic content and practical application. 

MESA’s mission is to build a pathway to college and careers in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math fields for students who are underrepresented in those fields:  African American, Latino/a, Native American and females.

The Southwest Washington MESA branch is housed at WSU Vancouver.
