The College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology welcomed dozens of students from more than 25 local middle schools, high schools, and community colleges to Cal State LA’s campus last month for the 18th annual MESA STEM Day in partnership with Boeing. Prospective students from middle school to community college were invited to take a closer look at Cal State LA, the College of ECST, and The Boeing Company as part of the daylong interactive event on Oct. 1, which kicked off the college’s MESA Schools Program. The MESA Schools Program is a pre-college program that aims to prepare educationally underserved students for degrees and careers in the math, science, engineering, computer science, and technology fields. During the event, volunteers from Boeing discussed careers at the company and led STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) activities. ECST faculty, staff, students, organizations, and competition teams offered workshops, activities, lab tours, and showcased projects.
