School has started and there has never been a better time to make eCYBERMISSION a part of your classroom! Sponsored by the U.S. Army and administered by the NSTA on behalf of the Army Education Outreach Program (AEOP), eCYBERMISSION is an online learning competition for students in grades six through nine. The competition challenges students to think about real-world applications of STEM by working in teams to identify a problem in their community and using scientific practices or the engineering design process to find a solution. Students can win on a state, regional, and national level, with national winning teams receiving up to $9,000 in U.S. EE Savings Bonds, valued at maturity.

Registration is now open for the 2014–2015 program year. Students registered by November 5 will receive a FREE STEM Research Kit, which includes a notebook, flash drive, and pencil. eCYBERMISSION is also giving away mini-grants this year to support teachers and their schools expand their STEM-based community projects in their classrooms. To apply for a mini-grant, teachers need to request an application from Chris Campbell ( prior to October 22 and then submit the application by October 29.
