ComEd ‘Solar Spotlight’ education program introduces high school students to STEM via the arts

For the past three years, ComEd has celebrated Black History Month by hosting a hands-on educational program designed to inspire African-American high school students to pursue careers in STEM – science, technology, engineering and math.

Now in its fourth year, this year’s Solar Spotlight included an artistic component to encourage STEM via The Arts – ComEd added the “A” for art to STEM to create STEAM.
