BEST is designed to introduce boys to the broad field of engineering. The Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering invites current middle school boys to learn about the exciting field of engineering from Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering faculty, staff and students. This year's virtual 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.  2021 will be the 10th year that the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering offers the BEST workshop complementing its sister workshop, Attracting Womein into Engineering (AWE), providing all middle schoolers the opportunity to explore engineering.
