Channel your superpowers and take on the Girls Who Change the World challenge

IBM, STEM Learning and Marvel Studios have teamed up to celebrate the cinema release of Captain Marvel by asking girls to channel their superpowers and be part of Girls Who Change the World!

Using Artificial Intelligence (AI), girls aged 11-14 are challenged to come up with ground-breaking ideas that will change the world for the better.

The challenge

We are looking for teams of up to five girls aged 11-14 to submit an idea that uses Artificial Intelligence (AI) at its heart and could make a difference to the world or community they live in.

Ten teams will be shortlisted and invited to attend an Education Day in London. Here, each team will meet their IBM mentor who will help them progress their idea into a prototype. These teams will also attend a Grand Final in July to present their idea to a panel of judges.

The prizes

The ten shortlisted teams will win Captain Marvel goodie bags.

The winning team will work with IBM’s research and development facility at Hursley in Winchester, to see how their idea can be brought to life. The winners will also win iPads, an experience day at IBM HQ, premium tickets for Madame Tussauds, a London Eye Friends and Family Capsule and more!
