It’s inevitable. At some point during your time as a student you will think to yourself “will I ever use this in real life?” The answer is a resounding YES for students who compete in our web-based science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) competition. eCYBERMISSION is for students in grades six through nine who work as a team to solve problems in their community. Teams compete virtually in state and regional competitions and in-person through the National Judging & Educational Event (NJ&EE) in June each year. And like any competition, winners are selected, and prizes awarded at the state, regional and national levels by grade level.
However, each year, regional finalist teams are also separately invited to apply for the STEM-In-Action grant for funds to implement solutions in their communities. Each of the five selected teams receive an award of up to $5,000. Curious to see how it’s going? eCYBERMISSION checked in with the grant recipient teams. Follow along with us.
