I am a declared #TeamIronMan. Of the many things to love IronMan, I am captivated by the fact that by age 19 Tony Stark already boasted an electrical engineering degree from MIT plus TWO MASTER degrees! Wow! I guess you do need all the Stem knowledge to build amazing inventions like his suit! Granted, all tis comes from comic books, Marvel is helping propel girls in STEM as part of the celebrations for Captain America: Civil War upcoming movie. That definitely is something to talk about and share. #CaptianAmericaEvent
Marvel proposes doing this via a great challenge:
Marvel’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR – “Girls Reforming the Future Challenge” that recently began and goes until March 26th. This program, supported by the Science & Entertainment Exchange, a program of National Academy of Sciences, seeks to inspire young girls to create positive world change for their generation and beyond through science and technology. One exceptional young woman will be selected to receive a one-week internship with Marvel Studios. Here is a video with Elizabeth Olsen (“Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch”) and Emily VanCamp (“Sharon Carter / Agent 13”) with more information:
There is still time to take the challenge and make big strides for our future. Come on girls, go after that amazing internship opportunity!
