Have you developed or dreamed of an amazing project you think could revolutionize the world, simplify our lives, help the disabled, or just make life on earth a little better, safer, or healthier? Marvel Studios is reaching out to girls ages 15 to 18 and in grades 10 through 12 and encouraging them to explore their inner potential to reform the future with positive world change by creating an original and innovative project using STEM.
In conjunction with the release of Captain America: Civil War (in theaters May 6), “Girls Reforming the Future Challenge”, Marvel is partnering with the National Academy of Sciences’ Science & Entertainment Exchange for a program in which girls can submit projects they believe can change the world with a short video that demonstrates their idea and explains its far-reaching potential.
The project is geared toward female applicants who are interested in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) projects and share the same goals as the Avengers onscreen: “The commitment to safeguard humanity, protect the earth at all costs and make the world a better place for future generations,” says Civil War star Elizabeth Olsen, who plays Scarlet Witch and hosts an introductory video with co-star Emily VanCamp.
Five finalists will be selected and each will:
- Receive a $500 High Yield Savings account from Synchrony Bank.
- Receive a trip to Hollywood, California for the finalist and a parent or legal guardian for the opportunity to present their project to leaders in science and industry at MARVEL STUDIOS.
- Will participate in a live global Broadcom Masters webinar during which they will discuss how their STEM skills enabled them to create their projects.
- Have the opportunity to walk the red carpet at the World Premiere of MARVEL’S CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR on April 12, 2016.
- Receive a tour of the Walt Disney Studios and Dolby Laboratories facilities.
One winner will be selected from the finalists to receive an internship opportunity at Marvel Studios.
