Move over, male superheroes. A new contest initiative from Marvel Entertainment encourages high school girls to develop science and tech projects that they believe can change the world.

Five finalists will win tickets to the red carpet premiere of Captain America: Civil War, while the grand prize winner will walk away with an internship at Marvel Studios.

Marvel launched the contest along with the National Academy of SciencesDolby LaboratoriesBroadcom and Synchrony Bank.

In the video, Olsen notes that even though Marvel’s heroes are divided in Civil War, “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.”

Through the Civil War Challenge, Marvel encourages young girls to do just that.
