RISE 2019 will be held on July 9, 10 and 11, 2019.  

RISE is a 3 day program 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, asphalt, wind turbines, bottle rockets, air cannons or music engineering during the hands-on engineering RISE workshop. In addition, a tour of the South Jersey Technical Park, including a virtual reality CAVE demo, is typically included in the RISE workshop.

This is the 12th 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.

The cost of this three-day, non-residential program is $300, which includes lunch. The deadline to apply to RISE is May 22, 2019.
