Over 700 educationally disadvantaged students from middle and senior high schools in the northern California region dropped eggs from the top of Stevenson Hall, raced miniature cars built from mousetraps down the hallways of Darwin Hall, flew gliders across the sky and competed in several other STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) focused activities on Saturday, April 30 at Sonoma State University. Well over 150 SSU faculty, staff, and students in addition to community members volunteered as judges, proctors, guides and helpers.
The event was coordinated by Bess Eiermann, MESA Schools Program Director, Santa Rosa Field Station, Darci Rosales, MESA Community College Program Director, SRJC, and the SSU MESA team of Izabella Kanaana, Brigitte Lahme, and Lynn Stauffer.
Here is a list of the MESA Day 2011 competition winners. Congratulations to each of you!
