THOR: RAGNAROK STEM CHALLENGE FOR GIRLS
Marvel covers so many amazing characters that show strength from brawny men and women, but also intellengence! Encouraging girls to expand their knowledge with STEM is something I have always been passionate about, and LOVE that it is becoming more widespread.
MARVEL STUDIOS’ THOR: RAGNAROK SUPERPOWER OF STEM CHALLENGE invites girls nationwide – ages 15 to 18 in grades 10 through 12, currently living in the 50 United States or the District of Columbia, to use the superpower of STEM for good by creating and sharing an original Do-It-Yourself project that could help your family, your community, or the world be safer, healthier, or happier.
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!
If you know any girls in your life who would fit the description, please encourage them to apply for the Thor: Ragnarok STEM Challenge! This is an amazing opportunity!!
Complete contest information will be available from August 23, 2017, through September 23, 2017. Entries will be accepted beginning on August 23, 2017 at 4:00AM PT through 6:00PM PT on August 23, 2017.
