Marvel has announced a new program entitled "The Ant-Man Micro Tech Challenge" that aims to bring girls ages 14 through 18 into the world of science (and by extension, raise awareness of July's Ant-Man among that demo).

The challenge involves building a DIY project out of readily available and found materials that includes at least one micro-technology component. Winners will team with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics education) programs in their areas to lead teams in recreating their projects. One grand prize winner will receive a trip to the Ant-Man premiere. Those interested can apply and learn more at the challenge's official website.

Marvel announced the project via a video featuring Ant-Man star Evangeline Lilly, seen here. Apologies for the somewhat appropriate ant-size of the video.
