“Our premise was simple, we wanted to include high school student in our Community of the Future and our Smart Cities initiative to make them aware of the emerging technology and potential opportunities as they think about the next level of their education. The Ideathon was born out of this notion that we would work with the nine high schools that are part of the Bronzeville community, and some of the technology that we are using, and challenge these young students to come up with ideas to make their block, their community, and their school safer and more respondent to the needs of the residents of Bronzeville.” MARLOW COLVIN,VICE PRESIDENT OF GOVERNMENTAL AFFAIRS FOR COMED
