Rowan University will hold the 2009 Summer Institute in Materials Science for high school students June 21 to 26 on the Glassboro campus.
This program is open to high school students who have completed their sophomore year of high school, have interest and ability in science and/or engineering and are considering a career in those fields. Participants will enjoy hands-on learning experiences with Rowan faculty and students from engineering and science departments while using state-of-the-art equipment, as well as meet with representatives of local industry. Students will explore how science, engineering and new materials are helping shape the future; discover the micro-universe; make and break composite materials; and create a hologram using laser technology. Additionally, participants will learn about job opportunities in the high-tech field of materials science while experiencing college life and making new friends.
The fee is $350, which covers food, housing and 24-hour supervision. From 5 p.m. to 8:30 a.m., student chaperones will be housed in the same dorm as the student participants. Three scholarships will be provided for applicants with outstanding academic records.
