Registration is open for the Army Educational Outreach Program's new eCYBERMISSION competition. This Web-based competition, free to students in grades 6–9, challenges teams to compete for state, regional and national awards while working to solve real problems in their community. Teams compete for awards up to $9,000 in U.S. savings bonds.
Registration for student teams is open until Dec. 17, 2015. Teams have until Feb. 25, 2016, to submit their science project, commonly referred to as the Mission Folder -- the official write-up of their project. During this period, eCYBERMISSION provides a wealth of online resources for student teams and team advisors to assist with project completion. Included in available online resources are eCYBERMISSION CyberGuide Live Chats, which allow teams to ask questions about their projects virtually to volunteer STEM experts who answer in real-time.
Registration is also open to professionals who are interested in participating as volunteers -- Virtual Judges, Ambassadors, and/or CyberGuides -- to help build students' interest in STEM.
