The challenge invites girls nationwide, ages 14 – 18, in grades 9-12, to design and build aDIY project using at least one readily available micro-technology component, which can enable tinkerers, makers, builders and futureImagineers to execute big ideas with a board that fits in their pocket and costs less than a video game. The projects can be utilitarian, artistic or just plain fun.

After completing a project, applicants will be asked to submit a short video demonstrating the project and explaining how it will inspire other girls to pursue interests in science, technology, engineering, or math.

The five winners will each receive: Two round-trip tickets to Southern California, including hotel accommodations, from June 28 through June 30, 2015, to be on the red carpet at the World Premiere of Marvel’s Ant-Man at the Dolby Theatre® in Dolby Atmos® on June29, 2015; attend a special “The Evolution of Technology” workshop on June 30 at The Disneyland® Resort where they will meet Walt Disney Imagineers who will introduce them to the broader scope of technology and how innovation is inspired during a behind-the-scenes tour of The Disneyland® Resort; and receive a tour of the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, California.

Upon completion of the challenge, a STEM-based girls program in each winner’s hometown will be selected to receive “re-create”instructions for each project. Each winner will have the opportunity to lead a workshop in building her project with the girls in the selectedprogram in her community. By sharing their work, the winners will accomplish big things from small beginnings by inspiring other young girls to follow their interests in computing, technology, and engineering.

Entries will be accepted from May 21, 2015 through June 11, 2015. For application forms, eligibility requirements, official contest rulesand more information about MARVEL’S ANT-MAN MICRO-TECH CHALLENGE, please visit www.Ant-ManChallenge.com
