Engineering Experiences at the Rowan University Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering

Middle and High School Field trips to the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering can be scheduled by emailing engineering@rowan.edu. An engineering overview, building tour and a hands-on engineering project led by engineering students are typically included in the experience but an engineering itinerary can be customized to your needs, based upon availability. Please note, transprotation to and from the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering and lunch are not provided in this experience.

The Rowan University Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering Distance Learning

Engineering students at the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering understand kids’ curiosity and drive to explore.  They know young minds become engaged in the learning process by doing projects versus reading about a project.  So, College of Engineering students are brining hands-on engineering projects and demos to the classroom through Skype and the Engineering Distance Learning Program. Please visit the webpage, to find out more.

Engineers Without Borders (EWB)

Outreach activities have extended beyond the region, and have encompassed the national and global community. Engineers Without Borders has helped communities around the world obtain clean water, treat waste water, produce energy, improve shelter, and develop sustainable industries.

Project Lead the Way (PLTW)

Rowan University is the State of New Jersey Affiliates to Project Lead The Way (PLTW). PLTW is geared towards inspiring middle school and high school students to pursue a career in engineering and technology. Project Lead the Way partners with higher educational institutions to promote pre-engineering courses in the nation’s high schools, and provides an integrated math, science, and technology curriculum in the middle schools. More information can be found at www.pltw.org.

Summer Workshops at the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering

Attracting Women into Engineering (AWE)

Attracting Women into Engineering (AWE) is designed to introduce middle school girls entering the 7th and 8th grades to the field of engineering. Participants in the highly competitive workshops will interact with faculty members and undergraduate students via hands-on experiments in the various fields of engineering. The goal of AWE is to provide middle school girls with opportunities to explore multiple engineering disciplines while reinforcing the need for them to stay focused on their science and math studies.

Boys' Engineering, Science and Technology (BEST) Workshop

The BEST workshop is designed to introduce middle school boys entering the 7th and 8th grades to the field of engineering. Participants will interact with faculty members and undergraduate students via hands-on experiments in the various fields of engineering. The goal of BEST is to provide middle school boys with opportunities to explore multiple engineering disciplines while reinforcing the need for them to stay focused on their science and math studies.

Rowan's Introduction for Students to Engineering (RISE)

Rowan's Introduction for Students to Engineering (RISE) is a summer workshop that features laboratory clinics, where students can participate in engineering activities, as well as campus tours and a chance to meet College of Engineering professors and students. High School students work with chocolate, Legos, Jenga blocks and bottle rockets during several hands-on engineering workshops and clinics.
