Join the eCYBERMISSION challenge for teams of students grades six through nine
eCYBERMISSION--Deadline extended to register your teams of students!! It is now January 15, 2013.
Over the past 10 years the eCYBERMISSION challenge has increased student literacy in STEM subjects. Register a team(s) of your students to compete in the eCYBERMISSION program. This competition is designed to build real-world application skills in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) and meet Common Core Standards.
Teams of 3-4 students must identify a problem in their community and then research, hypothesize, experiment and draw conclusions to help solve it. Teams then submit their projects to compete for state, regional and national awards, including up to $8ooo in savings bonds (maturity value).
The eCYBERMISSION team is on hand to help. Our online resources are available to registered Team Advisors and include sample lesson plans and information on how the eCYBERMISSION program fits into your state's standards.
We encourage you to access more detailed information by visiting www.ecybermission.com/help/TeacherResources.aspx.
How to get started:
- Form teams of 3-4 students and register. Team Advisors can also use the printed version of the student registration template and email it to email@example.com or fax it to 703-243-7177.
- Have each team select a Mission Challenge topic from one of the seven topic areas.
- Identify a specific community problem to solve.
- Use the scientific method or the engineering design process to create a solution.
In order to be properly credited for every registration and submission, please make sure that everyone that your chapter registers selects:
- “NSTA: referred by NSTA State Chapter” in the dropdown box for Registration Code
Registrations without this will not be properly credited to your association and will reduce your final payment.
Extra bonus! Students who participate will actively:
- Practice decision-making
- Experiment with the scientific method
- Develop their own hypotheses and conclusions
- Engage in collaborative learning

WSST gets a grant from NSTA for each team that registers for eCYBERMISSION. Wisconsin’s own Sue Whitsett, formerly a science teacher at Fond du Lac High School, is the national eCYBERMISSION contact!
