Hello, PAMLE members!
We at eCYBERMISSION are thrilled to join forces with the Pennsylvania Association for Middle Level Education to help bring high-quality education to Pennsylvania students and support Pennsylvania educators.
eCYBERMISSION is a free, virtual STEM competition for students in grades 6-9. Students form teams of 2-4, led by an adult Team Advisor, and select a problem in their community to investigate with science or solve with engineering. eCYBERMISSION is phenomenon-based, project-based, and problem-based, and encourages students to see the impact they can make with STEM while learning to work together to solve real-world problems. Registration for eCYBERMISSION is now open at www.ecybermission.com/register and projects can be submitted any time until March 6, 2024.
eCYBERMISSION aligns with Pennsylvania state science standards and provides free teaching resources in the form of lesson plans, activities, and more at www.ecybermission.com/advisorhelpcenter. Additionally, students have access to eCYBERMISSION CyberGuides, real scientists and engineers who are available to answer questions and provide technical support for projects through our online message board and monthly Zoom Live Chats (both of which are monitored by staff and invite parents and Team Advisors to attend with their students).
Funding in the form of the eCYBERMISSION Mini-Grant is available to Team Advisors that incorporate eCYBERMISSION in their classroom. Mini-Grants come in the form of two payments, the first to the school to cover the cost of project supplies and the second to the Team Advisor(s) as a professional stipend. The application takes less than 10 minutes to complete, requires no essays, and is open until November 16 at www.ecybermission.com/minigrantprogram.
Once again, we are so excited to begin our partnership with PAMLE in support of Pennsylvania STEM education. If you have any questions or just want to say hello, feel free to email us at email@example.com or follow us on social media!
