eCYBERMISSION challenges groups of students in sixth through ninth grades to identify a problem in their community and use the scientific method, scientific inquiry or the engineering design process to solve it.
Sponsored by the U.S. Army, eCYBERMISSION asks students to work in groups of three to four with a team adviser. Teams can win at the state, regional and national levels. The top prize is $24,000 in U.S. EE Savings Bonds.
The competition is free and web-based. Visit the eCYBERMISSION website for more details.
