Oregon MESA - Demo Day 2021
Note - date change to March 6th, 2021, 1-3pm due to power outages and school closures leading up to the event!
At Demo Day, MESA middle school and high school students will showcase their current projects. MESA is an equity first organization, meaning that we seek to serve and elevate students from groups that are currently underrepresented in the Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math fields (STEM). This year's challenge theme is “design for equity & la familia.” Designing for Equity means designing to minimize or eliminate barriers to opportunities for success. We tasked our students with interviewing a client and designing something that allows their client to overcome a barrier. Our students will then develop a solution to empower their “client” using the principles of human-centered design and invention education.
This year Demo Day is 100% virtual, which allows us to feature students across Oregon. Our students are middle school and high school students from Multnomah, Clackamas, Marion, and Washington Counties.
Demo Day is Oregon MESA's only annual student showcase that is open to the public and allows for the community to come and check out the amazing work that students have done.
Demo Day and all of our programs at Oregon MESA are only possible with the generosity of our corporate and nonprofit partners as well as individual donations. If you would like to donate visit the link here, thank you!
