Ant-Man Micro-Tech Challenge For Girls Announced


Marvel Studios is calling upon all female teenagers to harness their inner Hank Pym.

In anticipation for Ant-Man, Marvel, Disney, and Raspberry Pi have launched the Ant-Man Micro-Tech Challenge. For the challenge, all U.S. girls from 14 to 18 years-old can design and build their own invention that utilizes at least one piece of micro-technology.

After the creation, which can only be made from easily accessible materials, is complete, participants must then channel their inner Tony Stark with a short video demonstrating the invention and its ability to engage other girls in math, science, or engineering. If chosen, each winner will then be able to participate a workshop teaching others how to create their micro-tech. It'll be like having your own #sciencegirls, where you can put Stark and Bruce Banner to shame. Winners will also attend an "Evolution of Technology" workshop in Disneyland, where they'll meet Disney Imagineers for even more exploration into the world of technology.

Participants have until June 11 at 9:00 p.m. PDT to submit their creations.

So, what will you create? Your own DIY arc reactor? Maybe a shrinking Wasp suit? Let us know in the comments below.
