MEST-Up is a television game show that tests high school students in the areas of math, engineering, science, and technology. Schools from around the area send teams of two students to compete head to head in trivia and engineering challenges. At stake, according to the show’s host, “the MEST-Up trophy, brand new iPads, and eternal glory.”

Earlier in the fall, Waynflete’s current duo began the defense of the title by defeating Baxter Academy, Westbrook High School, and Greely High School. Tune in on Thursday the 18th to see if they can defend the crown.
