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.
Emily VanCamp and Elizabeth Olsen just introduced the Captain America: Civil Warchallenge, an opportunity for girls between the ages of 15-18 to explore science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) projects that “have the potential of creating positive change in 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.
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.
