Jr. MESA Day 2016



It has been an honor and a privilege teaching these three amazing MESA students. At this year's Jr. MESA Day competition, 6th grader Katelyn Lim placed 2nd for her egg drop project alongside Emmanuel Alvarez. Emmanuel also placed 2nd with his oral presentation about GMOs. 8th grader Jakarta Robinson is a repeat winner. This year she placed 2nd for her oral presentation on the importance of STEM education at Jr. MESA Day at CSULB and also took the 1st place medal at Regionals at UCLA. It will be an exciting adventure witnessing what the future holds for these young and talented Nelson Academy scholars.
