(a non-profit organization) in Augusta, Georgia and the US Army. The National Science Center takes science on the road with its Mobile Discovery Centers (MDC). Housed in 18-wheelers, the mobile centers travel across the country, presenting programs designed to show youth people that studying science and math is fun as well as essential to their future. The complete 50-minute program presented during van visits consists of hands-on, interactive science demonstrations engaging students in the learning process. Up to six sessions can be scheduled each school day. The MDC is currently offered as a FREE Outreach Program provided by the National Science Center and the Army. The Centers serve as a catalyst that excite America's youth about science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

b.  eCYBERMISSION external link (opens in new browser window) is a free, web-based science, math, and technology competition for students in grades six through nine. The competition encourages the formation of a team consisting of 3-4 students and one team advisor and challenges them to pick a Mission Challenge that will solve a real problem in their community using science, math and technology. The team will research and conduct experiments to find a solution to the problem. The 2009-2010 competition encourages teams to choose from one of four Mission Challenges:

  • Sports & Recreation
