eCYBERMISSION

eCYBERMISSIONBrief description: The Army Educational Outreach Program and the STEM Action Center partnered to bring you a one day no cost eCYBERMISSION Training. This program focuses on student (6-9th grade) scientific inquiry and engineering design process skills by increasing participation through providing educator support. Educators will attend a full 1-day PD workshop on scientific inquiry and the engineering design process to provide the pedagogy and skills needed to lead teams through eCYBERMISSION successfully. The PD will also help educators learn more on the specifics of eCYBERMISSION and how to advise a team. Educators will advise teams of 3-4 students in their chosen projects and submit them to eCYBERMISSION on February 27, 2020 (virtually). eCYBERMISSION will judge the projects and the top 3 teams in Idaho will be eligible for prize money to help sustain their program. The STEM AC will host three regionals in person showcase events to highlight student projects and allow students to learn from each other, have an opportunity to meet other students interested in STEM, and share accomplishments held March 7th, 2019 across the state. There will be a showcase in northern Idaho, eastern Idaho and southern Idaho so that teams from rural communities will be able to travel to a showcase easily.

Receive:

  • One-day PD training (No cost to participants)
  • $500 stipend (upon program completion) for advising at least one team during the FY19-20 eCYBERMISSION competition
  • $200 (total) towards materials for all their student projects

*Educators advising the winning state teams that place 1st, 2nd or 3rd will receive monetary awards (1st place - $750, 2nd place - $500, 3rd place - $250).
