Relive the Highlights of the 2016 Icebox Derby

December 27, 2016

Watch this video to relive the memories of ComEd’s award-winning 2016 Icebox Derby program that brought together 30 young women from across Chicagoland this summer to work together to transform old refrigerators into solar-powered race cars.

The Radiant Flames team won first place racing their derby car against four other teams to win the 2016 Icebox Derby STEM Cup.

One of ComEd’s most popular educational programs, the Icebox Derby is designed to educate and empower young women to explore opportunities in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math). This year’s program encouraged the participants to explore STEM through the lens of renewable energy by building and powering parts of their cars with solar technology.
