I am so excited to bring you this awesome STEM challenge. Not just because my son has grown up in the STEM program but because this is all about girl power.
Marvel Studios is, once again, encouraging young girls to explore the power of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). Channel your inner superpowers of STEM for good and you could win a trip to the premiere of Thor: Ragnarok and a mentorship with Disney Imagineering!
This program, supported by American Association for the Advancement of Science, Broadcom MASTERS, and Society for Science & the Public, seeks to inspire young girls to use the superpower of STEM to help their family, community or the world be safer, healthier or happier. MARVEL STUDIOS’ THOR: RAGNAROK SUPERPOWER OF STEM CHALLENGE invites girls nationwide, ages 15 -18 in grades 10 – 12 living in the 50 United States and D.C., to use the superpower of STEM to create an original Do-It-Yourself project that can be replicated by others.
Five finalists will be selected to come to Los Angeles and present their projects, in person, to a panel of experts. They will also have the opportunity to be on the r
One grand-prize winner (selected from the five finalists) will get to attend an immersive three-day mentorship in New York City with Disney Imagineering. There she will build her STEM story, create a video that will be available to students, teachers, and families worldwide on the American Association for the Advancement of Science education resource website ScienceNetLinks.com. Plus she will have the opportunity to demonstrate her project live on Good Morning America!
Now I am wishing I had actually paid attention in school especially in math and science class.
The contest runs August 23, 2017, through September 23, 2017. For the official rules, application, and more information visit Marvel Studios STEM Challenge.
Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok—the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization—at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela. But first, he must survive a deadly gladiatorial contest that pits him against his former ally and fellow Avenger—the Incredible Hulk!
