AWE Workshop



The Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering invites middle school girls to Attracting Women into Engineering (AWE), a program designed to expose females to the broad field of engineering. Current middle school girls (6th, 7th, and 8th grades), those entering the 7th, 8th and 9th grades in Fall 2016, may participate in any available one-day session during which they may work with and learn from College of Engineering faculty and students. The workshops will focus on hands-on engineering laboratory projects and will include experiments and professionalism.


This is the 17th year that the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering will offer the AWE workshops. AWE has continued to cultivate young girls’ interest in engineering through a hands-on approach to engineering, exposure to the diverse paths an engineer can take and the impact engineers will have in shaping the future.
