This competition has not yet posted any deadlines.

eCYBERMISSION is all about using Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics to solve a real problem in the community. Student teams will research and conduct experiments to find a solution to their selected mission. Teams can choose missions in these areas:

  • Alternative Sources of Energy
  • Environment
  • Food, Health & Fitness
  • Forces & Motion
  • National Security & Safety
  • Robotics
  • Technology

Once a team of students has chosen a Mission Challenge, they will complete the mission through these steps:

  • Research your problem, write a hypothesis, and conduct experiments.
  • Use "Team Talk" to meet with your team online or ask a CyberGuide questions. Log on to our Discussion Forums to talk to other competing teams or our CyberGuides in over 100 different topics from how to get started to how to grow green algae!
  • Answer ALL of the questions in your Mission Folder, and attach files such as photographs, survey questions, or even your own website.
  • Use CyberGuides who are who are experts in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics careers to help you with your project.
  • Follow the links in the Mission Folder to resources like Help and Team Talk.
At the end of the competition, teams will submit their Mission Folder to be eligible for awards.

All Mission Folders will be scored up to five times by eCYBERMISSION Virtual Judges. The Virtual Judge’s scores will be based on the following three judging criteria:
  • Use of "Scientific Inquiry Using Scientific Practices" or "Engineering Design Process"
  • Benefit to the Community
  • Team Collaboration
