Each school year Mesa Public Schools’ sixth graders participate in an extraordinary adventure in learning! Students eagerly arrive at the Space Integration Module (SIM) ready for a student-led mission to explore galaxy.

SIM provides an environment where students are problem solvers, innovators, makers, inventors and engineers applying knowledge in a relevant situation. With an emphasis on 21st century skills and aligned to sixth grade standards, students are immersed in STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math – preparing them to be the leaders of tomorrow.


Thank you to Boeing for their ongoing support
