AFCEA International is joining the National Science Teachers’ Association (NSTA) to execute the U.S. Army’s eCYBERMISSION Program. It is a free, Web-based science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) competition for students in grades six through nine attending U.S. or Defense Department Education Activity schools. The contest challenges students to identify a problem and find a solution using the scientific method, scientific inquiry or engineering design process.
AFCEA International has launched a major reorganization to improve engagement with every part of the association’s members, including government, industry and academia. Six headquarters elements now focus on specific areas. The new leadership configuration went into effect October 1.
