Boys' Engineering, Science and Technology (BEST) Workshop

BEST registration is closed - all sessions are full

BEST is designed to expose boys to the broad field of engineering. The Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering invites current middle school boys, those entering the 7th, 8th and 9th grades Fall 2015, to learn about the exciting field of engineering from Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering faculty, staff and students. The workshop focuses on hands-on engineering laboratory experiments and professionalism. BEST will cultivate young boys' interest in engineering through an applied approach to engineering, exposure to the diverse paths an engineer can take and the impact an engineer can have in shaping the future.

The cost of the one-day, non-residential BEST program is $50, which includes a pizza lunch. The deadline to apply for BEST is May 15, 2015.  For more information contact
