Community Education & Involvement

Ideathon kicks off January 12, 2019

ComEd hosts its second Ideathon as part of the Community of the Future in Bronzeville. The Community of the Future brings ComEd and local residents together to build upon the existing smart grid to enhance the way the community lives, works, and grows. The Ideathon is open to all high school students in Bronzeville — participants will partner with college mentors and engineers from ComEd, Silver Spring Networks, Accenture, and other technology leaders to develop innovations that have the potential to enhance everyday life! Ideathon winners will be selected in April.
