Tulare County CyberQuest

CyberQuest is a student-centered, problem-based learning activity designed to lead students to apply higher-level thinking skills in an authentic public speaking arena. Students apply research skills to a standards-based, curriculum-oriented thematic project. The work culminates in a multimedia presentation before a panel of judges and a public audience.

CyberQuest has grown from 25 teams to almost 100 teams. Our continued success is based on the hard work of teachers and volunteers throughout the educational and business communities.

Founded in Tulare County in 1998, CyberQuest is a student event that features research, presentation, and multimedia production. Students, grades 4-12, work in teams to create their solution to a scenario in a three-week period of time and then present their findings in a presentation that combines multimedia with speaking skills. The CyberQuest competition stresses the use of the National Education Technology Standards for Students.

Specifically, they address:

  • Creativity and Innovation
  • Communication and Collaboration
  • Research and Information Fluency
  • Critical thinking, Problem Solving, and Decision Making
  • Digital Citizenship
  • Technology Operations and Concept

2017 event scenario:

​A​ ​Superhero’s​ ​Journey​ ​Through​ ​History -- click to view flyer (Adobe PDF)

Your quest is to create a concept​ for a fictional superhero who by their actions revises the
course of history. Place your superhero into a historical event or period of your choice, within
the parameters of the history/social science content standards listed below, according to your
grade level.

State your superhero’s unique superpowers and/or abilities, assessing how he/she could have
altered the course of history, thereby demonstrating your knowledge related to historically
significant events. Be sure to include historically accurate chronology, geography, alternate
points of view, and cause and effect as part of your presentation. You are encouraged to use
the design thinking process to help create your historical superhero.

Present your fictional superhero concept​ in an eight minute multimedia presentation, to be
followed by a series of questions from the judges. (Note, in keeping with prior competitions,
props are not allowed and therefore, the prototype of your superhero and/or costumes is NOT to
be included in your presentation).

Projects will be scored based on the following: citations of research revealing an understanding
of multiple aspects of historical significance including chronology, geography, alternate points of
view, and cause and effect, as well as the effectiveness of the multimedia presentation itself
(visual and oral presentation skills). Evaluation criteria regarding both team research and
presentation will be in alignment with the grade level English Language Arts Standards
identified (see below).

History/social studies standards, along with design thinking principles are provided, solely, for your reference
