Demo Day is the community showcase where MESA students present the invention projects they have been working on and get valuable feedback from the community. According to this year’s theme, ‘Climate Action: Designing for Environmental Conservation,’ student teams have been working with a client in their community to design projects that protect, preserve and guard environmental resources from the negative impacts of humans and their activities. Students use the principles of human-centered design and invention education when developing these client-focused solutions.
Register now and check out the amazing projects at Demo Day, the only annual MESA competition that is open to the public!
Registration will be open from January 16th – February 26th.
Note: This Demo Day features students from the entire Portland region, including Multnomah, Washington & East Counties.
