RISE will be held on June 29, June 30 and July 1, 2020 at the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering from 8:00 AM - 3:00 PM on each of the three days

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.
