About MESO: Mobile Earth + Space Observatory

What is MESO?
The Mobile Earth + Space Observatory (MESO), is a science resource center on wheels that takes scientist educators with real scientific instrumentation and museum-grade educational programs to schools and communities throughout Colorado and beyond.

In a world where students increasingly acquire knowledge through the internet, MESO provides hands-on, inquiry-based instruction that allows them to experience what it is to be a scientist – igniting sparks of scientific inquiry and inspiring them to pursue additional education in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields.

Reaching the Underserved:
Colorado’s robust landscape hosts many remote communities which lack access to the science venues of larger metropolitan areas. MESO is unique in that it can bring the science center to these remote and often economically challenged locations, reaching demographics underrepresented in STEM fields.

How can you help?
By becoming a patron, you help make it possible to educate and inspire young scientists about earth and space. With your contributions, we can make sure that we have the latest upgrades in technology, including telescopes, cameras and interactive models, to help our students take accurate and meaningful data. They are then able to use this data to see how their actions can create positive change for the environment.
