Supporting Future STEM Leaders through eCYBERMISSION!

Frank speaks  at AEOP Alumni Panel
“My experience with eCYBERMISSION encouraged me to become an engineer…by junior year of high school, I had begun an internship with the U.S. Army.”        –Frank Bohn



Frank Bohn is an electrical engineer for the U.S. Army 
Communications Electronics Research and Development Engineering Center Command Power and integration Directorate Power Division in Aberdeen, MD. Frank and his team are developing a tactical micro-grid to more efficiently power army bases.

His work in STEM also includes volunteering with the U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program's (AEOP) eCYBERMISSION-a web-based national STEM competition for students in grades 6-9. Frank is a volunteer Virtual Judge, committing his time to scoring projects and providing constructive feedback for competing teams. In 2004, Frank was a part of a national finalist team competing in eCYBERMISSION whose project focused on animal abuse in their community.


               As a Virtual Judge, Frank is able to:

             -IMPACT student learning across the U.S.
             -LEARN how students apply STEM studies in a school setting
             -REVIEW, score, and write meaningful comments for team projects
             -SHARE his STEM knowledge expertise learned in school and career
             -ENJOY the flexibility and convenience of volunteering online 

eCYBERMISSION is a success because of volunteers like Frank. He strives to be a leader in everything he does, even encouraging his colleagues to volunteer with eCYBERMISSION as Virtual Judges and mentors for other programs in AEOP.

Frank is achieving his goal everyday by developing more leadership skills through the work he is doing with the U.S. Army and giving back to the community through AEOP volunteer opportunities.


“It is an amazing feeling to see these young kids getting excited about STEM,” said Frank. “It is an honor, and it gives me great pride to be able to volunteer and give back to eCYBERMISSION and AEOP.”
