Leading up to the premiere of ‘Captain America: Civil War’, Disney and Marvel have teamed up with Dolby Laboratories, Synchrony Bank, Broadcom Masters, and the National Academy of Sciences to launch Captain America: Civil War – Girls Reforming the Future Challenge, a new contest for girls interested in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics). Young women can submit a project that utilizes STEM to improve the world and benefit mankind, whether it is to simplify lives, help the disabled, or just make life on earth a little better, safer, or healthier. The contest runs from now until March 26th and is open only to girls between the ages of 15 and 18 (as of March 26, 2016) , in grades 10-12, and who are legal residents of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia. Five finalists will be flown out to Hollywood where they will present their project at Marvel Studios and walk the red carpet at the premiere of ‘Captain America’. One winner will be awarded an internship at Marvel Studios. If you’re interested in applying, you can visit their website for rules and instructions here.

Marvel Launches ‘Girls Reforming The Future Challenge’ For Girls Interested In STEM
Becky used to play Power Rangers with her Barbies as a kid. She was a huge fan of Batman: The Animated Series, probably because it came on before the Power Rangers. Currently, she is living in California, pursuing her dreams of becoming an actor/writer/Black Ops agent who only fights mean demons. She’s written for Funny or Die, as well as some jokes for TV shows that were too good to air. You can also see some of her sketches performed live at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre in Los Angeles. They’re mostly about the Power Rangers.
