Hollywood & Science Team Up to Help Girls Find Mentors

In Marvel’s "Thor: The Dark World," Academy Award-winner Natalie Portman portrays astrophysicist Jane Foster, an independent spirit who follows her heart and journeys to a new world. Now through October 20th, girls ages 14 and up in ninth to 12th grade can enter Marvel's THOR: The Dark World - Ultimate Mentor Adventure and find out what it takes to become a successful woman in science.
 
The program offers girls the opportunity to meet mentors—real-world female scientists in communities across the country—and consider whether a career in a STEM field is right for them. Entrants can also apply for a chance to travel to California to meet female leaders in the STEM community.
 
The program is a collaboration between the National Academy of Sciences’ Science and Entertainment Exchange, Marvel Studios, UL (Underwriters Laboratories), Dolby Laboratories, Girl Scouts USA, and Hollywood’s El Capitan Theatre.
