Register for summer 2020 RISE here

RISE Jr. - 3rd through 5th graders  **New in 2020

July 7, July 8 and July 9, 2020 (three-day, non-residential camp)

9:00 AM - 2:00 PM each day at the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering 

RISE Jr. is a three-day, non-residential camp for 3rd through 5th graders to explore engineering at the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering. Students will be introduced to the “Ask, Imagine, Plan, Create, Improve” design process through hands-on learning. Build a computer; Design and launch rockets; Make bubbles sink; Explore good circuits vs. bad circuits; Can you really make an ocean’s wave? Join us this summer to "Do Engineering"!

RISE - High schoolers 

June 29, June 30 and July 1, 2020 (three-day, non-residential camp)

8:00 AM - 3:00 PM each day at the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering

Rowan's Introduction for Students to Engineering (RISE) is a three-day, non-residential workshop experience that features laboratory clinics, exciting engineering activities, campus & industry tours, and mentoring by Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering professors and students. Students from high schools throughout the region may work with chocolate, polymers, arduinos, concrete, wind turbines, bottle rockets, air cannons or music engineering during the hands-on engineering RISE workshop. In addition, a tour of PSEG and the South Jersey Technical Park are typically included in the RISE workshop.

2020 will be the 15th year that the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering will offer the RISE workshop. RISE has continued to cultivate interested high schoolers' enthusiasm for engineering through an applied approach to engineering, exposure to the diverse paths an engineer can take and the impact engineers will have in shaping the future.
