First Look at “The Shepherd” Film Directed by László Illés - Historical Drama Based on True Events

“The Shepherd” is poised to debut at film festivals across the globe. It is a historical drama taking place in Hungarian territory occupied by the Nazis in 1944.
The film’s essence tackles ordinary people risking all to do right. The film is a tribute to everyday unsung heroes and their selfless sacrifices for mankind, as their character did not allow passivity in the midst of terror. There is still a need today for unsung heroes to risk all
for a greater good or something bigger than themselves.

HFS Student Scholars Win Top Prize for Smart Pathways Prototype

HFS Student Scholars Win Top Prize for Smart Pathways Prototype

Student Presentations Conclude Inaugural Year of ComEd HFS Scholars

STEM Program & Energy Academy

CHICAGO (June 4, 2019) – The inaugural year of the ComEd HFS Scholars STEM Program and Energy Academy concluded this weekend with student project presentations and an awards ceremony recognizing the top three teams. Students from across a variety of high performing schools around the city were awarded the top prize of $2,000 for their innovative technology concept, Smart Pathways. Smart Pathways was designed to light pathways in a more energy efficient way through motion sensors and light dimming capabilities. The Smart Pathways prototype also included safety features such as movement tracking through its light sensors.

Winning criteria for the student prototypes in the competition included the potential to deliver community benefits related to health, safety, sustainability, connectedness, mobility, efficiency and education.

Winning students, Austin Ayite, Kamron Brown, Bryce Choice and Chris Iwuoha were among the 50 freshman that participated in ComEd’s HFS Scholars STEM Program and Energy Academy, a four-year educational program connecting socioeconomically-disadvantaged high school students to STEM subjects, specifically related to the energy industry. Since its kickoff in December, students have been taking part in an immersive experience, learning the fundamentals of energy, smart city technologies and sustainability, in addition to developing smart grid prototypes with professional engineer mentors.

“While the partnership we’ve built with HFS Chicago Scholars offers its students the unique opportunity to learn about the exciting future of energy, it also grants us the opportunity to learn from these bright students,” said Shay Bahramira, Vice President of Engineering and Smart Grid at Comed. “We look forward to building upon this partnership and to see these freshmen students grow over the course of their high school career, as they all achieved excellence over the past five months.”

Mia Cadichon, Dulce Chavez, Ashley Farinango, Dayanara Orellana, Luz Perez and Amanda Zavala won second place and were awarded $1,250. The team developed a Smart Charger designed to charge phones in a more energy efficient way, as well as reduce overheating and/or exploding phone batteries, by turning off the charger once the phone reaches 100% power.

Saul Garcia, Edgar Mijarez, Leslie Ortega, Israel Ramos and Edgar Valadez placed in third, receiving a prize of $750 for developing a Smart Carbon Dioxide Detector that was designed to improve air quality and emergency response times in regard to carbon dioxide emissions. The prototype included integrating sensors into existing technology to sense the amount of carbon dioxide in the air as well as assist in emergency response by rerouting GPS systems and working with traffic signals to route traffic away from dangerous areas.

“ComEd has been a fantastic partner for over 10 years,” said Mike Kennelly, Founder & Chairman of HFS Chicago Scholars. “They launched this program this year, and it’s been great for our freshmen scholars, learning scientific concepts from ComEd’s scientists and engineers, and how to apply them.  But more than anything, seeing them have a lot of fun along the way.”

Other student prototypes ranged from smart outlets helping reduce excess energy usage to smart canes helping the sight impaired to technology that would use precipitation as an energy source to generate electricity and a water source by filtering the water for home appliance usage.

The HFS Scholars STEM Program and Energy Academy is part of ComEd’s Community of the Future in Bronzeville, a collaborative effort of local residents and ComEd to use smart grid technologies to create a connected, green and resilient community and enhance people’s everyday lives.  Other Community of the Future pilots include a microgrid that enhances the security and resiliency of the electric system; an electric vehicle transportation service for seniors; a community energy storage pilot; off-grid renewable lighting structures; and sensor-based technologies that are being piloted with nearby Illinois Tech. The Community of the Future also features STEM education programs for Bronzeville and Chicago-area high school students, who are applying microprocessor technology to design solutions that address community needs and enhance quality of life.
