News: Army scientist shares STEM lessons with students, teachers

Registration for the 2013-2014 eCYBERMISSION competition is well underway. In addition to the Students and Team Advisors, an important part of the eCYBERMISSION competition is the volunteers who serve as CyberGuides, Ambassadors, and Virtual Judges. The U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDEC) recently spoke with Stephanie Marcott, a research chemist who has volunteered as an eCYBERMISSION Virtual Judge.

Marcott enjoys helping children build interest in the STEM fields. She devotes much of her time by assisting students with physics projects. Marcott believes that mentoring is a big step in teaching and encouraging children to explore STEM fields. eCYBERMISSION volunteers builds upon this concept by assisting students with their scientific exploration.

Volunteers are a major aspect of the eCYBERMISSION competition. We encourage those with a background in the STEM fields to register as a volunteer today!
