eCYBERMISSION Contest

eCYBERMISSION

Do you want to help your 6th through 9th grade students get excited about math and science in the real world?  eCYBERMISSION is a web-based competition from the U.S. Army that encourages students to solve real problems in their communities using Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

Students identify a problem in their community and then choose a mission challenge that addresses it.  They then compete for state, regional and national awards while working to solve the problem.

In the ten years since the contest’s inception, over $8.5 million have been awarded to students across the country.

Get your 3-4 student team together quickly because applications are only being accepted through December 16th.  For more information and to apply, go to the eCYBERMISSION website.

Kathryn Thompson is a mom to two school-aged kids, a toddler and a deceased betta fish. She can also be found at The Parenting Post, DaringYoungMom.com and occasionally the gym.
