White Station Middle School students take part in national STEM competition

The White Station Middle School team "Supernovas" won state and regional competitions and will represent six southern states in the national competition.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — It was a big day for one group of middle school students here in the Mid-South. White Station Middle School was in Washington to compete in eCybermission, one of the biggest STEM competitions. 

The eCybermission is a U.S. army supported national STEM competition, and its organizers said its mission is to explore how Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics work in our world.

The White Station Middle School "Supernovas" is one of twenty teams selected in the U.S. to represent Memphis. 

Their focus was to find out if digital media really helps people de-stress. The group of eighth graders studied how time scrolling social media and playing video games affected stress levels in students at their own school.

The team presented their study Thursday morning.

The "Supernovas" won state and regional competitions and become the national finalist to represent the six southern states.
