ComEd offering new STEM program to give young women hands-on experience

ComEd has launched a new summer STEM program, called the EV Rally, and is seeking young women ages 13-18 to apply for a chance to build an electric racecar.

The program selects 30 applicants from the Chicagoland area who will be paired with women engineers at ComEd to build and drive an electric go-kart. The program is a chance for girls interested in career pathways in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math to learn, make connections, and apply their skills. Additionally, each participant will receive a $2,000 scholarship for completing the program.

Applications are being accepted now through June 6. Those interested can apply here.
