Congratulations to our students from Melva Davis Academy of Excellence (MDAE) for their success in the annual UC Riverside MESA (Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement) competition. Teams from schools all over the Inland Empire competed to show their skills in math-based, engineering problem solving as they built a roller coaster for a marble run. The students’ creativity and scientific skills were put to the test, and our students passed with flying colors. We had 5 teams from MDAE enter the competition and two of our AESD teams became finalists with one of our teams earning 1st place! We are so proud of our STEAM program at MDAE. Go Titans!
First Place Team: Espiral de la Muerte – Leilani Casillas (not pictured), Jaide Davis, Gwendolyn Lancaster, Keefer Pacheco, Tyra Palmer-Miller
Finalist: The Rabbit Hole – Ahmyia Brown, Ariana Guajardo, Lorenzo Guajardo, Adam Guevara, Jesse Najera
