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
- Food Health and Fitness
- Forces and Motion
- National Security and Safety
