Teach STEM Skills in Your Classroom Through eCYBERMISSION

This Web Seminar took place on November 8, 2012, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. The presenters were Brian Short and Larry Cain at NSTA. In this program Mr. Short and Mr. Cain shared information about eCYBERMISSION, a free, web-based STEM competition for students in grades 6–9 that aligns with state Science Standards.

The PowerPoint, related resources from the NSTA Learning Center, and web links from the presentation are now contained in the above resource collection. Clicking on the collection link will place it in your Learning Center, My Library, neatly organized under the My Resource Collections tab.

In this seminar Mr. Short and Mr. Cain provided an overview of eCYBERMISSION, then offered strategies for each phase of a mission challenge. Participating educators learned how to guide students in selecting a topic, writing a problem statement, collecting and analyzing data, and drawing conclusions to share in a final presentation. Throughout the web seminar participants responded to questions that got them thinking about ways to apply the strategies to their own classrooms and lead their students in a successful mission challenge.

Seminar participants received one of the NSTA SciGuides. A certificate of attendance was deposited into participants' My PD Record and Certificates area in the NSTA Learning Center for completing the evaluation form at the end of the program.

Here are some comments provided by the participants at the end of the Web Seminar:

  • “It was a great use of my time. It was well constructed and I enjoyed the frequent surveys and question and answer sections.”
  • “I appreciated getting fast answers to questions.”
  • “Appreciated the detailed information regarding each phase of the program.”

Thanks to the participants and the presenter for the learning opportunity, the interactions, and a job well done!
