The Army Educational Outreach Program is on a mission to increase student interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through the eCYBERMISSION program. Sponsored by the U.S. Army and administered by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), eCYBERMISSION is an online learning competition for students in grades 6 through 9 that promotes self-discovery and enables them to recognize the applications of STEM in their lives.
eCYBERMISSION also enters its 12th year with a new and improved website. The website offers a fresh new look and easy navigation through the competition's online resources. Registered eCYBERMISSION students form teams that will use real-world STEM application skills to research, hypothesize, experiment and draw conclusions while meeting common core standards! Teams then submit their projects to compete for state, regional and national awards, including up to $8,000 in savings bonds (maturity value).
Over 21,000 students registered in the 2012–2013 competition year. The eCYBERMISSION team looks forward to another year with more team submissions, meeting curriculum standards in classrooms and rewarding innovative Mission Folders that will benefit America's communities. Register today! Students registered by November 1st will receive a FREE STEM Research Kit. The first 1,500 teachers who register as team advisors will receive an eCYBERMISSION STEM Activity Kit, which includes lessons, resources, and tools that they can use to introduce the competition in their classrooms!
