2010–2011 eCYBERMISSION Registration Opens August 1st!

Registration for the ninth annual eCYBERMISSION competition begins on August 1st at http://www.ecybermission.com/.
eCYBERMISSION is a FREE, web-based, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) competition for students in grades six through nine. Sponsored by the U.S. Army, eCYBERMISSION is a fun yet productive competition that challenges students to think about the real-world applications of STEM education.

Students work in teams to identify problems in their communities and apply the scientific method to find solutions. Teams are comprised of three to four students with an adult Team Advisor to serve as a mentor. Each team formulates a hypothesis, conducts research and experiments, and compiles its data into a Mission Folder, which is submitted, along with supporting attachments, on the eCYBERMISSION web site.

There are 96 winning teams each year, and students on these teams will receive up to $8,000 in U.S. EE Savings Bonds. The 16 first-place winning teams are invited to the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area to compete in the national competition and enjoy several educational enrichment activities. Since the competition's inception in 2002, the U.S. Army has awarded more than $8.6 million in prize money, and over 71,000 students have participated.
