Arizona MESA

Starting in California in 1970, Mathematics, Engineering Science Achievement is one of the oldest STEM programs focused on increasing the number of under-represented students interested in and pursuing in STEM. Today MESA consists of 10 states pursing a shared Mission to advocate for STEM education, equity and access. For more information visit the MESA USA website..

In Arizona, MESA is facilitated through The Office of Early Academic Outreach  at The University of Arizona. Grand Canyon University's Strategic Educational Alliances collaborates with Arizona MESA to support MESA in the Phoenix Metro Area.

MESA serves approximately 60 middle and high schools across the state with most schools in the Tucson and Phoenix Metro areas. Other areas served include Nogales, Sells, Eager, and St. Michael's on the Navajo Nation.
