eCYBERMISSION is a free, web-based, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) competition for students in grades six through nine. Sponsored by the U.S. Army, eCYBERMISSION challenges students to think about real-world applications of STEM by working in teams to identify a problem in their community and use the scientific method, scientific inquiry or engineering design process to find a solution.
Teams have the opportunity to win State, Regional and National awards and students on winning teams can receive up to $8,000 in U.S. EE Savings Bonds. The 16 First-Place Regional Winning Teams are invited to attend the National Judging and Educational Event in our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. Since the competition's inception in 2002, the U.S. Army has awarded over $8 million in U.S. EE Savings Bonds, and over 83,000 students have participated.
Registration for the 2011-2012 competition year will remain open through Dec. 16, 2011. Register your complete team (three to four students and a Team Advisor) by Sept. 30 to be the first to receive your research kit! Research kits will include a notebook, pen and flash drive for each student.
