The Army Educational Outreach Program is on a mission to increase student interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through the eCYBERMISSION program. Sponsored by the U.S. Army and administered by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), eCYBERMISSION is an online learning competition for students in grades 6 through 9 that promotes self-discovery and enables them to recognize the applications of STEM in their lives.
eCYBERMISSION also enters its 12th year with a new and improved website. The website offers a fresh new look and easy navigation through the competition's online resources. Registered eCYBERMISSION students form teams that will use real-world STEM application skills to research, hypothesize, experiment and draw conclusions while meeting common core standards! Teams then submit their projects to compete for state, regional and national awards, including up to $8,000 in savings bonds (maturity value).
If you are interested in competing, please let me know so you can formulate your team!
