Looking for a fun real-world STEM challenge for 6-9th grade girls? E-Cybermission is an online competition that pulls together STEM learning and community action to make the world a better place. 

Teams of 3-4 girls take on a mission challenge of their choice, identify a community problem, and use scientific inquiry or the engineering design process to come up with a solution. Projects are submitted online for state and national awards.

Girl Scout teams competing in E-Cybermission receive support from national volunteer Cyberguides, an E-Cybermission patch, and an opportunity to put their ideas into action. 

Mission Challenge Choices:

  • Alternative Sources of Energy
  • Environment
  • Food Health and Fitness
  • Forces and Motion
  • National Security and Safety 
  • Robotics
  • Technology
