Hello, 4th and 5th Grade Families of Bushy Park!


My name is Mr. Kollosch and I am a second grade teacher here at Bushy Park. I hope you are ready because we are preparing to start our second year of MESA!


MESA stands for Math, Engineering, Science Achievement. It is administered by John Hopkins Applied Physics Lab. MESA club provides an opportunity for students at the elementary level to explore their interests in STEM education and careers.


Students will participate in project-based team competitions ranging from county to state level. Students experience engineering, computer programming, physics, and many more STEM opportunities while developing strong communication and collaboration skills.


MESA is an awesome experience, but no easy task. I am looking for students who are willing to make a commitment for a majority of the school year and for students who have strong interests in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Last year, our club won multiple awards at the county competition and even went on to place at the state level competition.


If you are interested in being part of MESA, then please come to the MESA interest meeting that I am hosting on Monday, September 19th at 6:00pm. This will be a VIRTUAL meeting for students and their families to join and get some general information about MESA. I highly recommend attending so you know the expectations for participating in this club! The link and code for the google meet is provided below. I will be sharing a google form application after the meeting for fourth and fifth graders to complete. Applications will also be posted on the Bushy Park website after the meeting. Submissions for the applications will be due by the end of the day on Friday, September 23rd.


We did such an amazing job last year! Let’s show the rest of Howard County and the state of Maryland, how awesome we are…AGAIN! :)
