I can’t tell you how excited I am to learn about this new challenge! Marvel is aiming to challenge young female AVENGERS to create a positive world change with science and technology!Disney, Marvel Studios, Dolby Laboratories, Synchrony Bank, Broadcom MASTERS and Science & Entertainment Exchange, a program of National Academy of Sciences have united to launch the MARVEL’S CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR – GIRLS REFORMING THE FUTURE CHALLENGE in conjunction with the May 6, 2016 release of Marvel’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR!
According to a recent press release, in CIVIL WAR, each hero is forced to take a stand and choose a side in their fight to reform the future. Unfortunately the team becomes divided, but they remain united by the same goals… to safeguard humanity, protect the earth at all costs and make the world a better place for future generations. The films stars Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Emily VanCamp, Frank Grillo and Martin Freeman with William Hurt and Daniel Brühl.
You may have noticed Marvel’s incredible success with the Ultimate Mentor Adventure, Guardians of the Galaxy: Guardians of Good, and Ant-Man Micro-Tech Challenge. These programs aimed to expand young minds and cultivate innovation! This time Marvel is presenting the GIRLS REFORMING THE FUTURE CHALLENGE to engage young women in making the world a better place.
So let me give you a little more information on this program… It’s being supported by the Science & Entertainment Exchange, a program of National Academy of Sciences. They aim to inspire young girls to create positive world change for their generation and beyond through science and technology. One exceptional young woman will be selected to receive a one-week internship with Marvel Studios. Yes, you read that right… an internship at Marvel!!
The challenge invites girls nationwide, ages 15 – 18, in grades 10 – 12, to submit innovative STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics)-based projects that have the potential to change the world. Each applicant will be asked to submit a short video demonstrating her project and explaining how her science and technology-based project could make the world a better place. Five finalists will be selected to come to California and present their projects to a panel of experts. One grand prize winner will be selected from the five finalists to receive an internship with Marvel Studios.
Finalists will have the opportunity to inspire other young girls around the world by participating in a LIVE global Broadcom Masters webinar during which the girls will discuss how their STEM skills enabled them to create their projects and become a finalist of the GIRLS REFORMING THE FUTURE CHALLENGE. The Grand Prize Winner will share her MARVEL STUDIOS Internship experience, giving girls everywhere a peak into STEM skills in action outside the lab and the classroom.
Each finalist will receive: Two round-trip tickets to Southern California for the finalist and her parent or guardian, including scheduled meals, ground transportation to and from organized activities, hotel accommodations, from April 10 through April 13, 2016; an opportunity to be on the red carpet at the World Premiere of Marvel’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR at the Dolby Theatre® in Dolby Atmos® and Dolby Vision™ on April 12, 2016; a tour of the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California; and $500.00, deposited into a High Yield Savings account with Synchrony Bank.
