Towson, MD – The state of Maryland’s MESA Challenge proved to be yet another opportunity for Baltimore County Public Schools students to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
MESA stands for Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement.
At the high school level, Eastern Technical High School student teams finished first in the Cyber Robot/Python Code-writing Challenge, first in the BattleBall Challenge, and second in the National Engineering Design Competition.
Because of their success, student teams from Eastern Tech were the overall high school winners at the State MESA Challenge.
At the middle school level, Deer Park Magnet Middle School student teams had a second-place finish in the Alice 3 Challenge and a third-place finish in the National Engineering Design Challenge.
At the elementary level, the Hebbville Elementary School student team placed first in the Effective Communication Challenge.
“These three schools exemplified the hard work Baltimore County teachers and leaders do every day to help students learn and achieve,” said Ann Meckel, MESA coordinator for Baltimore County Public Schools. “I applaud school staff for all of the time, talent, and effort they contribute so that students can demonstrate success!”
