Rowan's Introduction for Students to Engineering
Rowan's Introduction for Students to Engineering (RISE) is a three-day, non-residential workshop experience that features laboratory clinics, exciting engineering activities, campus & industry tours, and mentoring by Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering professors and students. Students from high schools throughout the region may work with chocolate, polymers, iPads, asphalt, wind turbines, bottle rockets, air cannons and music engineering during the hands-on engineering RISE workshop. In addition, a tour of the South Jersey Technical Park, including a virtual reality CAVE demo, is typically included in the RISE workshop.
2017 will be the 11th year that the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering will offer the RISE workshop. RISE has continued to cultivate interested high schoolers' enthusiasm for engineering through an applied approach to engineering, exposure to the diverse paths an engineer can take and the impact engineers will have in shaping the future.
Overnight accommodations are not provided for RISE students. Transportation is not provided.
Lunch is provided each day or the student is welcome to bring a brown-bag lunch.
Safety requires that all students wear closed-toe shoes and long pants to RISE.
