SEEKING THE NEXT JANE FOSTER! 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.
Marvel Studios, UL (Underwriters Laboratories), Dolby Laboratories, National Academy of Science, Girl Scouts USA along with the famous El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, are proud to team up to sponsor a nationwide MARVEL’S THOR: THE DARK WORLD ULTIMATE MENTOR ADVENTURE in conjunction with the November 8th release of the film starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman.
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.
MARVEL’S THOR: THE DARK WORLD – ULTIMATE MENTOR ADVENTURE is looking nationwide for girls – just like you – ages 14 and up in grades 9-12 to apply to be a part of this incredible journey. 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.
On Friday, November 8th, 2013, finalists will conclude their journey and will be recognized at the Premiere Screening of their MARVEL’S THOR: THE DARK WORLD Ultimate MENTOR ADVENTURE documentary short. This video short will be shown at the historic El Capitan Theatre prior to the screening of MARVEL’S THOR: THE DARK WORLD on the film’s opening day!
