Rowan Engineering introduces the BEST new programJuly 02, 2012
About 100 middle school boys from throughout the region (Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Ocean, Passaic and Salem counties in N.J. and beyond) will learn to build bridges, bottle rockets and robotics and study biomedicine through worms, among many other opportunities, when they participate in Rowan University’s new engineering education program, Boys’ Engineering, Science & Technology (BEST) from Wednesday, July 11, to Thursday, July 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, at Rowan Hall, the College of Engineering building off Bowe Boulevard in Glassboro.
BEST provides hands-on experience in engineering, science and technology to middle school boys. BEST combines education and fun as the boys work with Rowan engineering and computer science faculty to learn the technical basics in easily identifiable ways, like building bottle rockets or programming robots. Attendees also will conduct a project with worms and hear a presentation from Rowan’s chapter of the global outreach organization Engineers Without Borders™.
This new program is just one of Rowan's many offerings for K-12 students and educators.
