Hello Middle School Neighbors,
 
As part of our community programming initiatives, we are hosting an amazing experience at IN2@IMSA called PowerUP! Lights Out and we're inviting middle school students and parents who would like to play alongside local Emergency Management Agencies as "power players" to help us get our Power Grid back online after a simulated cyber attack. Our event is Tuesday, October 17th from 4:30pm to 8pm.  Dinner is included, sponsored by ComEd.
 

PowerUP Design Challenge “Lights Out”, in recognition of Careers in Energy week and National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, is focused on the following goals:

 

1)    Introduce participants to the roles of Energy, Cybersecurity and Emergency Management careers and partnerships.

 

2)    Educate participants on importance of Disaster Preparedness and Community Collaboration.
