MESA

MESA is a program of the California State University, Long Beach that serves educationally disadvantaged students and, to the extent possible by law, emphasizes participation by students from groups with low rates of eligibility for four-year colleges. MESA provides a pipeline of academic services from elementary through university level to increase the number of these students who graduate with degrees in math, science, and engineering.   The CSULB MESA program serves its students with innovative academic, college and career counseling and hands-on science programs, which are great opportunities to compete, show off and meet new friends.  

Ninth-Grade A.C.E. students participate in MESA Classes: Students follow MESA-developed curriculum that reinforce California State Math and Science Standards to build hands-on projects. CSULB students act as tutors to assist the students with MESA projects and activities. Students enter these projects in our Preliminary MESA Day competitions. Top winners advance to regional and, in some instances, national contests. The Academy projects are highly effective demonstrations of the theory and practice of Math and Science.

Career and college exploration: Guest speakers and field trips show students a wide variety of college and career opportunities.

Incentive awards: At the end of the academic year, A.C.E. participants and their parents are invited to CSULB to attend an awards banquet honoring outstanding student achievement, participation, and leadership.

Mr. Joe Tucciarone, A.C.E. Math Instructor and Mr. Dave Braunstein, CSULB MSP Curriculum Coordinator oversee the MESA program at Jordan.  All are consistantly working with students on new projects and ideas for competitions.  Jordan's Robotics team won First Place in their Division last year.
