Area high school students RISE in Rowan EngineeringJuly 02, 2013
More than 40 high school students from throughout the region (counties in New Jersey: Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cape May, Gloucester, Cumberland, Morris, Somerset and in Pennsylvania: Bucks) will learn to build bridges, explore wind power, study robotics 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. It will be held this year from Tuesday, July 9, to Thursday, July 11, 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.
