Thor The Dark World comes out in theaters on November 8 and it’s going to be awesome! Be sure to check out the trailer. I’m really excited about this new contest that coincides with the built up to the movie, Thor The Dark World Ultimate Mentor Adventure. If you’re young girl or a mom or teacher or can pass this on to girls ages 14 and older in 9th through 12 grade, check this out!
The search is on for the next Jane Foster! That’s Natalie Portman’s character, an astrophysist in Thor. I personally LOVE to see girls take an interest in math, science, and tech careers so this is fantastic to me: an opportunity to connect young girls with mentors in these fields.
You can get all the details and apply for this contest here!
The The Dark World Ultimate Mentor Adventure
MARVEL’S THOR: THE DARK WORLD ULTIMATE MENTOR ADVENTURE aims to empower girls 14 years and up, in grades 9 – 12 nationwide, to embark on a journey to discover their potential and future in the world of STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Through the collaborative efforts of Marvel, UL (Underwriters Laboratories), Dolby Laboratories, National Academy of Sciences and Girl Scouts USA, girls will have a chance to go out into the real world and ask successful women in STEM fields about what they do, how they got where they are…and how others can follow in their footsteps. The process is designed to help students to understand who they are, and why this experience can be impactful on their futures.
What’s the prize?
Finalists of MARVEL’S THOR: THE DARK WORLD ULTIMATE MENTOR ADVENTURE will win a week’s trip to Southern California, provided by UL (Underwriters Laboratories) and Dolby Laboratories. The Ultimate Mentor Adventure will allow the girls to meet some of the most incredible Women in Science such as Dolby Laboratory Senior Scientists, conducting interviews and be challenged to participate in experiments. It will also include interactive events and go behind-the-scenes where the general public is not normally invited – all while having their adventure filmed. On Friday, November 8th, the winners will conclude their excursion and be recognized at the Premiere Screening of their Ultimate Mentor Adventure documentary short. The video short will be shown at the El Capitan Theatre prior to a screening of MARVEL’S THOR: THE DARK WORLD in Dolby® Atmos™ on opening day.
This contest runs through October 20 so you want to get your application in (or pass it on to any girls you know in this age group) before then.
