Rowan University to Hold Summer Institute in Materials Science for High School StudentsMarch 07, 2005
Rowan University?s College of Engineering, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Department of Physics and Astronomy will hold the Summer Institute in Materials Science for high school students and science teachers in June.
The student program, designed for those interested in science and engineering, will run from June 20 through June 30. Science teachers interested in earning 30 professional development credits are invited to attend a one-week program between June 27 and June 30 that will include a discussion on Science Core Curriculum Standards.
The Summer Institute will give students and teachers the opportunity to explore how science, engineering and new materials are helping shape the future. Participants will discover the microuniverse, make and break composite materials, create a hologram using laser technology, and learn about job opportunities in the high-tech field of materials science.
The student program fee is $300 for the two weeks. On-campus housing is available and recommended for all students. The teacher program fee is $200. Financial aid assistance is available. The Summer Institute is supported by Rowan University; the New Jersey Commission on Higher Education; and industry leaders such as Hysitron, Sony, and EnTCo.
