2018 SWENext / eCYBERMISSION Micro-grant Application

Deadline: January 01 2018 at 11:59 PM CST (Midnight)


Description

The 2018 SWENext / eCYBERMISSION Micro-grant program encourages students (in grades 6th - 9th) to use STEM fields to solve real-world problems.

Participation in the eCYBERMISSION is free; awarded funds are to be used for supplies and related costs for students to complete the eCYBERMISSSION 2018 challenge.

eCYBERMISSION is a web-based science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) competition for 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. The U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program is committed to answering the Nation’s need for increased national STEM literacy and to expanding STEM education opportunities across the country to open doors to new career paths for American students that lead to a brighter tomorrow.

The National Association of Secondary School Principals has placed this program on the 2017-18 NASSP List of Approved Contests, Programs, and Activities for Students.

This award is sponsored by Battelle through the Army Educational Outreach Program.
