Check out new behind the scenes Civil War movie footage in a Marvel’s Girls Reforming the Future Challenge video
Disney, Marvel Studios, Dolby Laboratories, Synchrony Bank, Broadcom MASTERS and Science & Entertainment Exchange, a program of National Academy of Sciences, announced today plans for a new nationwide program called the Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War – Girls Reforming the Future Challenge. Read on for full details about the challenge and check out the video at the bottom of this page, courtesy of USA Today. It contains some new behind-the-scenes Civil War movie footage.
In Marvel’s new Civil War movie, each hero is forced to take a stand and choose a side in their fight to reform the future. Although the team becomes divided, they remain united by the same goals: the commitment to safeguard humanity, protect the earth at all costs and make the world a better place for future generations. Marvel, continuing to build on the success of the “Ultimate Mentor Adventure,” “Guardians of the Galaxy: Guardians of Good,” and the “Ant-Man Micro-Tech Challenge,” is launching the “Marvel’s Girls Reforming the Future Challenge” to engage young women to further the Avengers’ goal of making the world a better place.
This program seeks 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. 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 “Captain American Civil War: 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.
