Spring/Summer 2011

Oracle Offers International Competition

Up to 2,000 MESA students in four states will learn a collaborative online learning model provided by the Oracle Education Foundation. The ThinkQuest platform allows students to compete in real-world, problemsolving projects.

The foundation will train more than 300 teachers on ThinkQuest and give students the opportunity to enter the ThinkQuest International Competition 2011. MESA students are encouraged to showcase their MESA Day engineering projects through ThinkQuest to solve real world issues such as renewable energy. MESA students will also have the opportunity to compete amongst other MESA students as a MESA Day activity.

Students from California, Colorado, Maryland and Washington MESA will participate. California MESA is the founding member of MESA USA, which is a partnership of MESA programs from eight states.
