45 Young Women to Race Electric Vehicles July 29th

Forty-five young women from the Chicagoland area are preparing to participate in ComEd’s second annual EV Rally, a program that educates young women on electric vehicles (EVs), science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) principles and clean energy careers while connecting with female ComEd mentors.

The ComEd EV Rally is designed to prepare the next generation of the clean energy workforce, while simultaneously helping bridge the gender gap in STEM. The 45 students are working with female ComEd mentors over four build days to assemble high-tech, electric go-karts while learning about a variety of career opportunities in STEM. At the end of those four days, on Saturday July 29th, the group will race their completed cars at the Museum of Science and Industry.

To inspire even more young people by the power of STEM, ComEd is giving away 500 tickets to the Museum of Science and Industry for young girls and their families to use on race day. Information on how to receive tickets can be found at ComEdEVRally.com.
