Due October 20th, 2013 - MARVEL’S THOR: THE DARK WORLD - ULTIMATE MENTOR ADVENTURE aims to empower girls ages 14 and up in grades 9-12 to embark on a journey that will allow them to explore their potential in the world of STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Through the collaborative efforts of MARVEL, the National Academy of Sciences, and Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., 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.

Finalists from the applicant pool of MARVEL’S THOR: THE DARK WORLD - ULTIMATE MENTOR ADVENTURE will be selected for the opportunity to meet some of the most incredible women in science, all while conducting interviews, participating in experiments and interactive events, and getting the opportunity to go behind-the-scenes where the general public is not normally invited – all while having this adventure filmed.

To Enter:
  Step 1: Download, Complete, and Submit Your Forms (click link below to obtain forms)
  Step 2: Go On Your Own Hometown Mentor Adventure! This is your 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 today, and how you might follow in their footsteps.
  Step 3: Create a 5-minute, unedited video of yourself! You may use a Smartphone, computer, tablet, or a camera to make your video. Here is what they would like to know:
     - Tell the judges about yourself. How are you like the character Jane Foster from MARVEL’s THOR?
     - Tell the judges about your interview. Whom did you meet? What does she do? How is her career related to STEM? What inspired you?
     - What next steps might you take to explore a STEM career?
