Marvel Studios – alongside Disney, Dolby, Synchrony Bank, Broadcom MASTERS and the Society for Science and the Public – have devised an amazing opportunity for amazing women to coincide with the theatrical release of Doctor Strange.
“Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange” follows the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange who, in his quest for healing after a horrific car accident, discovers powerful magic in a mysterious place known as Kamar-Taj—the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Marvel Studios, building on the success of Captain America: Civil War–Girls Reforming the Future, the Ant-Man Micro-Tech Challenge, and the Ultimate Mentor Adventure, continues to encourage young girls to discover the magic of science and technology with MARVEL STUDIOS’ DOCTOR STRANGE–THE MAGIC OF STEM CHALLENGE.”
This program, with close support from Broadcom MASTERS and Society for Science and the Public, aims to inspire young girls to work with a mentor exploring the wonders of science and technology. One lucky young woman will be picked to be mentored by members of the Digital Team over at Walt Disney! She will learn how to create her own science vlog, in which an episode will be shown on a Walt Disney Company media platform.
This challenge is accessible girls nationwide aged 15-18, inviting them to think of their favourite – or most vexing – scientific or technological question and then to find a mentor who will help them explore the secrets and mysteries behind their question. Each application should submit a short, science video in the style of a vlog, to share with others what she learned from her mentor.
In the wonderful words of Marvel themselves:
“Five finalists will be selected to come to attend the World Premiere of Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange. Each finalist will receive: Two round-trip tickets to Southern California for the finalist and her parent or guardian, including scheduled meals, ground transportation to and from organized activities, hotel accommodations, from October 19 through October 21, 2016; the opportunity to be on the red carpet at the World Premiere of Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange; a $1,000 deposited into a high-yield savings account from Synchrony Bank; a tour of the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California; and more.”
If you’re interested in taking part, or simply want to find out more information, head over to the official website for the program. Entries will be accepted from September 19th through to October 5th, so hurry!
Marvel’s Doctor Strange will magically appear in theatres on November 4th, 2016.
