eCYBERMISSION is an online STEM competition for 6th to 9th grade students that promotes teamwork, self-discovery, and the real-life applications of STEM. Students work in teams of two to four, led by an adult Team Advisor, to choose a problem in their community to explore with science or solve with engineering. Throughout the competition, students work on team building and interact with STEM professionals while competing for state, regional, and national awards that can be used for future education.
