Marvel Fan Girls, it’s your time to shine! Marvel just announced that they are hosting a STEM Challenge for high school girls. The winner will receive a trip to the world premiere of THOR: RAGNAROK and a mentor-ship with Disney Engineering. STEM is a superpower you use every day, and MARVEL STUDIOS is challenging you to channel that superpower for good.
As a girl mom this is so exciting to me–girls in STEM rock.
Marvel Studios: Superpower of STEM Challenge
The Marvel Studios THOR: RAGNAROK – “Superpower of STEM Challenge” has begun and will run until September 23rd. Girls ages 15-18, in grades 10-12, are encouraged to channel their superpower of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) for a chance to win a trip to the world premiere of Marvel Studios’ THOR: RAGNAROK, an immersive three-day mentorship in New York City with Disney Imagineering, the opportunity to appear on Good Morning America, and more.
The project you make can be as simple or complex as you want. It can be something practical or something that would bring people joy – a robot, an app, a toy – anything that harnesses the superpower of STEM! You may create a new project or may submit an original project that had previously been developed for a class, for a science competition, or just for fun. Let your imagination and STEM skills run wild.
Entries will be accepted beginning on August 23, 2017 at 4:00AM PT through 6:00PM PT on September 23, 2017. For application forms, eligibility requirements, official contest rules and more information about MARVEL STUDIOS’ THOR: RAGNAROK SUPERPOWER OF STEM CHALLENGE, please visit www.marvelstudiosstemchallenge.com.

Marvel features some butt-kicking, smart ladies in their films and we love that. My girls love seeing that not all super heroes are men. This contest is an absolutely fantastic way to showcase girl power at its fullest extent. We cannot wait to see who the winner is on Good Morning America!
And don’t forget, THOR: RAGNAROK opens in theaters November 3rd.
