The eCYBERMISSION STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) stars hit the red carpet on Friday, June 24 as the 16 teams of Regional eCYBERMISSION Winners gathered during the National Judging and Education Event (NJ&EE) at the National Awards Banquet for the announcement of the First-Place National Winners for each grade level. For the past nine years the National Awards Banquet gathers these outstanding STEM students to celebrate their hardwork and achievement throughout the year. Here's a quick look at the National Winners for each grade level.
The National First-Place Team for the sixth grade was Team Genius. Team Genius's project included efforts to create a device that would eliminate phantom leaks in electricity, which occur when an electronic device is left plugged in when not in use, such as cell phone chargers.
Overall the week of NJ&EE was fun, it was exciting, and most importantly, it was educational for all who were involved. In a week filled with excitement, some highlights of the week included a presentation by the Black Ops Brothers, a tour of the Capitol Building, monuments and museums in Washington, D.C., and last but certainly not least, a fun sampling of science and engineering during the Army Labs Day presentations!
Congratulations to all of our 2011 First-Place Regional Winners and good luck next year!
