AWE will be offered on July 21, 22 or 23, 2020 (one-day program) from

9:00 AM - 3:00 PM on each day at the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering

AWE is designed to introduce middle school girls to the broad field of engineering. The Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering invites current middle school girls, those currently in 6th, 7th, and 8th grades during the 2020-2021 school year, to learn about the exciting field of engineering from Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering faculty, staff and students. The one-day, non-residential workshop focuses on hands-on engineering laboratory experiments and professionalism. AWE will cultivate young girls' interest in engineering through an applied approach to engineering, exposure to the diverse paths an engineer can take and the impact an engineer can have in shaping the future.  2020 will be the 21st year that the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering offers the AWE workshop.
