Area high school students RISE in Rowan EngineeringJuly 02, 2012
About 50 high schools students from throughout the region (Atlantic, Bergen, Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Middlesex, Monmouth and Morris counties in N.J. and Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties in Pa.) will learn to build bridges, explore solar power, study robots and step into virtual reality, among many other opportunities, when they participate in Rowan's Introduction for Students to Engineering (RISE).
RISE is a three-day workshop experience that features hands-on laboratory clinics, engineering activities, campus and industry tours, and mentoring by College of Engineering professors and students, from Tuesday, July 24, to Thursday, July 26, from 8:30 a.m. to approximately 4:30 p.m. each day, at Rowan Hall, the College of Engineering building off Bowe Boulevard in Glassboro.
RISE provides an overview of engineering and what engineers do, along with familiarization with Rowan’s engineering majors and a glimpse of college life. Students also will be exposed to how engineers assist underdeveloped regions through Rowan’s student chapter of Engineers Without Borders™.
The competitive program is just one of Rowan's many offerings for K-12 students and educators.
