You’ve seen the latest trailer for Captain America: Civil War, now get a behind-the-scenes look at how it all came together. As part of the Science & Entertainment Exchange, a program called “Girls Reforming the Future Challenge” has been launched that encourages girls ages 15 to 18 to submit projects they feel can change the world.

In the above video, actors Emily VanCamp and Elizabeth Olsen discuss the project’s importance, and why we need more women involved in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Finalists will have the opportunity to travel to California to present their projects to a panel of experts, according to USA Today, and even attend the movie’s world premiere on April 12.

One grand prize winner will get to intern at Marvel Studios.

“I’m really excited to meet these exceptional young women who have STEM backgrounds and who maybe also want to be part of more of a creative- and science-based world,” says Olsen in the video.”

In addition to spawning a terrific contest, fans also get a great look at what Civil War looks like before CG is added in post.
