Actress NATALIE PORTMAN has launched a contest for teenage girls who are interested in science, technology, engineering and math.
The Oscar winner’s own love of science prompted her to sign on to her role as astrophysicist Jane Foster in Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World, and now she wants to encourage other young women to become involved in the field through the comic giant’s Ultimate Mentor Adventure.
The competition’s finalists will have an opportunity to conduct interviews, participate in experiments and interactive events, as well as meeting inspirational female figures in the sciences.
A film short about the girls’ experiences will be shown prior to the opening day screening of Thor: The Dark World.
Considering our deep love for STEM-related projects here at HuffPost — and any initiative that invites young girls and women into the male-dominated Marvel world, for that matter — this news is simply wonderful.
Natalie Portman and “Thor: The Dark World” have just announced a new contest exclusively for teen girls who are interested in science, technology, engineering and math. Portman even made a video about it (which you can watch here) where she talks about her “Thor” character Jane Foster, an astrophysicist, and her own personal love for science.
“The role gave me an amazing opportunity to explore science in all its possibilities,” she says.
Here are more details, according to the website:
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.
Their experience will be made into a video short which will be shown prior to the opening day screening of “Thor: The Dark World.” Applicants must be at least 14 years old and in grades 9-12.
Between this and Natalie Portman’s awesome statement earlier this week about feminism being about more than just “kicking-ass,” she’s quickly becoming one of our favorite Hollywood role models.
Whether working in period togs (The Other Boleyn Girl) or futuristic clobber (the Star Wars prequels), Natalie Portman has always been blessed with a certain spirit, something that shines through no matter what she’s doing. She matches looks with brains and chooses a wide variety of work to keep things interesting. From her breakthrough as a would-be assassin to her Oscar win, there’s no danger of her becoming stuck in a rut.
Many liked her as the damaged, yet still sexy Nina Sayers in Black Swan, but she defined a genre in Zach Braff’s Garden State as Sam, at the forefront of the pixie dream girl movement – though she works on a level beyond it.
