A Little HELP goes A Long way. Help us fulfill our mandate through STEM or any of our projects as we work together in reviving the space industry in the country and as we journey together to Mars.
STEM Professionals Needed as Virtual Volunteers! eCYBERMISSION, a web-based Science, Technology, Engineering and Math competition for 6th-9th grade students. We are still in need of volunteers as virtual judges for this competition cycle. Registration deadline is drawing near. Please consider registering with us today. It will take only a few minutes to complete. Let me know if you have any further questions. Looking forward to you joining our volunteer STEM community. STEM Competition Virtual Judges- Volunteers will spend time (self-paced) from March 14-30, 2018 to review, score, and provide comments on team submissions. We ask volunteers to score 10-15 submissions, which on average, takes 30 minutes per submission. eCYBERMISSION provides a clear judging rubric for all submissions as well as support from the eCYBERMISSION Volunteer Team. Thank you, Volita Russell, Outreach Specialist

Hello! For a class project that I had to do recently, I was asked to advocate for a cause that I care about. I chose to make a website about the importance of space exploration. On this website, I explain the benefits of exploring space and then provide descriptions of and links to a variety of space advocacy organizations. I am sharing the link to the website on this page in the hopes that it will be farther shared so it can reach a wider audience and have more of an impact!
