Designed to inspire student interest in STEM, eCYBERMISSION challenges students in grades six through nine to develop solutions to real-world problems in their local communities.

Team T.2.6 – comprised of Seham Ahmed, Aurora Pederson, Steph Hewitt and Payton Nevland – took first place for their creation of an app that alerts you when your school bus is running late.

Team Faze – comprised of Kamden Baer, Jackson Thurn, Noah Kuck and Thomas Bye – took second place for their creation of a time management watch.

First-place teams receive a $1,000 U.S. Savings Bond and move on to the regional competition, while second place state winning teams receive a $500 U.S. Savings Bond.

From the regional competition, four regional-winning teams in each grade level will be selected, and will then compete against their peers from each grade level at the National Judging and Educational Event, taking place in Washington, D.C. On the last day of the event, four national winners in each grade level will be chosen.

Teams were led by “Team Voltage” teachers Jane Laux, Eric Dobervich, Andrew Preston and Stephanie Gorde.
