The coolest piece of news to come out of the Doctor Strange universe lately however has been the Doctor Strange: The Magic of STEM challenge.
Much like the Captain America: Civil War challenge “Reforming the future” and the ant-man micro-tech challenge, this challenge will focus on inspiring young women to enter the STEM fields. The “Ultimate Mentor Adventure” will help inspire young girls to “discover the magic of science and technology”. Check out the rules below:
This program, supported by Broadcom MASTERS and Society for Science and the Public, seeks to inspire young girls to work with a mentor to explore the wonders of science and technology and, in turn, to teach and inspire others. One exceptional young woman will be selected to be mentored by members of the Walt Disney Company’s Digital Team and will learn how to create her own science vlog, an episode of which will be shown on a Walt Disney Company media platform. The challenge invites girls nationwide, ages 15 – 18, in grades 10 -12, to think of their favorite, 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 applicant will be asked to submit a short, science vlog-style video, which shares with others what she learned from her mentor.
Five finalists will attend the Doctor Strange premiere in Southern California complete with a tour of the Disney Burbank studios. One grand prize winner will be selected who will be mentored by the Walt Disney Studios Digital Team. They’ll learn how to produce their own science vlog episode, from story board to development and presentation. The winner’s vlog will be shown on a Walt Disney company multimedia platform.
