Boys' Engineering, Science and Technology (BEST)

Registration for BEST 2020 will begin February 2020

Tentative dates for BEST are mid-July 2020 (one-day program)

 

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 2019, 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 will offer the BEST workshop.
