Save to Favorites

eCYBERMISSION

Team Image_202011060554

eCYBERMISSION is recruiting volunteers to serve as Ambassadors of our program to their local communities.

eCYBERMISSION, an Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) project, is an annual web-based STEM competition for 6 th to 9 th grade students that promotes teamwork, self-discovery, and the real-life applications of STEM. Teams of 3 to 4 students, with the help of a Team Advisor, create projects that identify and solve problems in their community while competing for State, Regional, and National Awards.

Ambassadors are advocators of STEM. The Ambassador role is ideal for individuals, either civilian or military, engaged in their communities and eager to support STEM education through outreach and networking. Many of our Ambassadors are teachers, college professors, STEM professionals, involved in military service, or parents of a past eCYBERMISSION student.

The Ambassador role prioritizes year-round networking to raise awareness for and increase local participation with the program. Depending on their networks, Ambassadors focus on engaging and networking with schools, organizations, and individuals in their communities to recruit volunteers, team advisors, students, teachers, schools, or organizations. During the COVID-19 pandemic all outreach may be conducted virtually.

Mission:

  • Increase local participation by encouraging students and teachers in the community to get involved
  • Network with colleagues and encourage peers to join eCYBERMISSION as CyberGuides, Virtual Judges, Team Advisors, or as an Ambassador
  • Connect with STEM organizations to promote future participation
  • Connect with schools and raise awareness for eCYBERMISSION and the Mini-Grant program

Commitment

  • After completing the required background check, this is a year-round opportunity, 1-2 hours per week, and can accommodate any schedule in-person and virtually. During the COVID-19 pandemic all outreach may be conducted virtually.

Registration is Always Open

Accept the challenge, visit www.ecybermission.com/register and join the mission to promote STEM education and help support the over 18,000 middle school students across the nation competing in the competition.
