eCYBERMISSION is a web-based science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) competition free to students in grades six through nine that promotes self-discovery and enables all students to recognize the real-life applications of STEM. Teams of three or four students are instructed to ask questions (for science) or define problems (for engineering), and then construct explanations (for science) or design solutions (for engineering) based on identified problems in their community. Students compete for State, Regional and National Awards.

On behalf of the United States Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) and its eCYBERMISSION program, the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) is seeking Mini-Grant Applications for the 2016-2017 academic year. Disbursements are based on the number of students involved as well as free/ reduced lunch status of the school. 1/3 of the grant moneys will be sent to the school directly to be used to support student participation in the program in the form of supplies or professional development for the teacher.

To apply for the mini-grant, please complete the 2016-2017 application and submit it electronically to Cheryl Long ( by September 28, 2016. Teachers will be notified by October 6th if they have received the Mini-Grant for the 2016-2017 school year.
