ComEd’s commitment to helping young women enter the STEM workforce is spearheaded by programs like the EV Rally. A summer program featuring 45 Chicagoland teenagers working in teams to build and build and race their own electric go-karts with mentorship from women at ComEd. This is just one of the ways ComEd helps students realize their STEM futures

The EV Rally is just one example of how we are trying to diversify the STEM industry. Learn about how we’re helping other underrepresented groups get into STEM.
LET THE GAMES BEGIN
The EV Rally is officially underway. The girls came together for a team-building scavenger hunt at MSI and for their first build night at the garage. With the help of ComEd mentors, each team took the first step to constructing a winning go-kart.
