||Quest: MESH (Math, English, Science and History) is a one-week residential summer program for 6th and 7th graders held at the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts in Natchitoches, Louisiana. Working in small teams, students create and propose solutions to real world problems with far-reaching implications and test their ingenuity in concluding which of the possible solutions discovered would be the best. Reliance on “back of the book answers” is replaced with confidence in a student’s own ability to solve problems creatively and effectively. Each student is expected, as a member of the team, to bring his or her own skills and knowledge to the group’s effort.
