HCPSS regional MESA competition to be rescheduled

The Regional Mathematics, Engineering and Science Achievement Program Competition was canceled for Friday, March 8.

Howard County Public School System spokeswoman Rebecca Amani-Dove said the competion would be rescheduled, on a date to-be-determined.

Students in county schools' Mathematics, Engineering and Science Achievement Program (MESA) are among those that will participate in the Regional MESA Day Competitions at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab in North Laurel.

The competition is hosted by the school system.

Students will compete through physical and electronic projects, including a new cyber-security competition involving programming and coding, and the designing of a robotic arm. Winners of the competition are eligible to compete at the state level, and possibly advance to national competition in Oregon in June.

MESA is a multi-year, pre-college program that prepares students for majors and jobs in math, science, technology and engineering fields.

Check back to see the winners.
