eCYBERMISSION is a free, virtual STEM competition for 6th-9th grade students that promotes teamwork, self-discovery, and the real-life applications of STEM.

Registration is now open, click the link below to learn more and register today!


eCYBERMISSION is completely free, completely online, and completely fun! As a Team Advisor, you assist your teams in choosing a problem in their community to explore with science or solve with engineering. With eCYBERMISSION, your students will experience STEM firsthand, work on team building, and compete for state, regional, and national awards that may be used for future education. eCYBERMISSION students have applied for and received patents, expanded their projects into businesses, and even become the first ever TIME’s “Kid of the Year”.

eCYBERMISSION is Made for Classrooms like Yours

eCYBERMISSION was designed with educators in mind. Our Team Advisor Help Center is full of free resources like lesson plans, video lessons, rubrics, timelines, and activity sheets that make including eCYBERMISSION in your classroom, school, or program simple and easy. You’ll be supported throughout the process by our eCYBERMISSION staff, and your students will have access to our CyberGuide mentors, real scientists and engineers that provide technical support. eCYBERMISSION supports Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core connections, and various state connections.
