The new summer BEST program is a three-day, non-residential, camp that will be held on July 14, 15, and 16, 2020 from 9 AM - 3 PM at the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering.  This engineering day camp includes hands-on engineering projects, students building their own PIPER Computer, tours of the engineering buildings and laboratories, a planetarium show, and lunch at the student dining hall.

BEST is designed to introduce boys to the broad field of engineering. The Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering invites current middle school boys, those entering the 7th and 8th grades in Fall 2020, 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. BEST will cultivate young boys' 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 10th year that the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering offers the BEST workshop.
