The Birmingham Chapter of the American Association of Blacks in Energy (AABE) hosted a hackathon at Ramsay High School this month. The event, supported by Alabama Power employees, offered students a real-world learning opportunity, exposure to energy professionals and company leadership, and career development.

Four teams competed to find a solution to a real-world scenario around electric vehicles. They were tasked with creating a campaign pitch to raise public awareness and increase usage of EVs in Birmingham, with consideration to existing gasoline vehicles, costs of EVs and current infrastructure.
