ANNOUNCEMENT

Calling all girls between ages 15-18 who are alumni from the Broadcom MASTERS program.


This means you were selected at Synopsys ACSEF within the past 6 years as a Broadcom Masters nominee AND you followed through and sent your application to the competition.


Marvel is hosting a contest from now until October 5th for girls who are interested in STEM fields to submit a video about working with mentors to solve scientific questions. You can learn more about the Doctor Strange: The Magic of STEM Challenge here.


Five finalists will be selected to attend the World Premiere of Marvel Studio’s Doctor Strange. Each finalist will receive an all-expense paid trip to California for the premiere, a walk down the red carpet, $1,000 from Synchrony Bank, a tour of the Walt Disney Studios and more. One grand prize winner will be selected from the finalists to be mentored by The Walt Disney Studios Digital Team and learn how to produce their very own science vlog episode, which will later be shown on a Walt Disney Company media platform.
