What is it?

“eCYBERMISSION is one of several science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) initiatives offered by the Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP). The U.S. Army is committed to answering the nation's need for increased national STEM literacy and expanding STEM education opportunities across the country to open doors to new career paths for America’s students that lead to a brighter tomorrow.”

What does it cost?

This is a FREE program!

What do you need?
  1. A team of 3-4 students in your grade from your state
  2. An adult Team Advisor
  3. A Mission!
How does it work?

Teams of students choose a "Mission Challenge".  With the assistance of “CyberGuides” (civilian and/or uniformed Army personnel guides are located all around the country and are only accessible through the Internet with the goal of answering team questions within 24 hours) and “Mission Control”, teams work to complete a “Mission Folder”.  There is no limit to number of teams a school can have.

What roles are there to fill?
  • Students – investigate experiment and have fun!
  • Parents – encourage their children’s investigation
  • Advisors – the students’ first source of help
  • Ambassadors – the Face of eCYBERMISSION . . . civilian or military Volunteers
  • Cyberguides – help students with their Mission Folders
  • Virtual Judges – evaluate student Mission Folders
Where can I get more information?
