eCYBERMISSION Competition year, more than 15,300 students from across the nation and globe registered and Accepted the Challenge. As the competition’s 10th year working to extend an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to America’s youth, this is no doubt a direct reflection of a national concentration and effort to increase student awareness and participation in such subjects.
The diversity of this year’s participants is incredible, with students in all 50 states, plus hundreds of participants from U.S. territories and Department of Defense Education Activity Schools, such as: American Samoa, Germany, Guam, Italy, Japan and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
This astounding number is supported by 689 Team Advisors, volunteers that devote countless hours to ensuring that teams not only complete their Mission Folder projects, but do so successfully and with knowledge gained in all STEM subjects. Without the tireless effort and commitment of our Team Advisors, some of which incorporate eCYBERMISSION into their classroom curriculum, the competition would not see such successful results year after year.
Each team that completed registration by the Dec. 16, 2011, will receive an eCYBERMISSION STEM Research Kit. This kit is composed of an eCYBERMISSION notepad, pencil and flash drive for each student to use as they begin conducting their research and experimentation for their projects.
Mission Folders for this year’s competition should be submitted on the program’s website at http://www.ecybermission.com/ no later than Friday, Feb. 24, 2012, at 11:59 p.m. EST. Teams with additional questions regarding Mission Folder submission are encouraged to contact Mission Control at 1-866-GO-CYBER (462-9237) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
