The National Science Teaching Association (NSTA) administers the eCYBERMISSION program on behalf of the U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program. As a longstanding partner, NSTA oversees this web-based science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) competition for students grades six through nine that enables participants to recognize the real-life applications of STEM. Teams of three or four students are instructed to ask questions or define problems in their community and then utilize science and engineering concepts to construct explanations or design solutions based on the identified problems. Learn more about eCYBERMISSION here.

An eCYBERMISSION Request for Proposal (RFP) is currently available for the next funding cycle (up to 18 months) to increase participation in the eCYBERMISSION program, with a strategy that directly engages priority population students, families and teachers and targets military dependents in order to dramatically diversify participation in this competitive program so it reflects our national demographics. The RFP is available here. Find the Articles of Collaboration for the AEOP Consortium, here.

The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) is the largest professional organization in the world promoting excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning, preschool through college. NSTA’s membership includes approximately 50,000 science teachers, science supervisors, administrators, scientists, business representatives and others involved in science education.
