eCYBERMISSION is a free, web-based STEM competition for students in grades six through nine that promotes self-discovery and enables all students to recognize the real-life applications of STEM. Teams of two to four students (teams can be mixed grades) are instructed to ask questions (for science) or define problems (for engineering), and then construct explanations (for science) or design solutions (for engineering) based on identified problems in their community. Students compete for State, Regional and National Awards.

You'll Get To...

  • develop ideas that address problems facing your community
  • interact with scientists and engineers who currently work in robotics, technology, forces and motion, environment, food and nutrition, national security and safety, and alternative sources of energy
  • gain valuable team building experience
  • see the real-life application of STEM as you bring your ideas to life
  • earn state, regional, and national awards


Rising 6th through 9th grade students are eligible
