Press release from Red Bank Regional High School

For over 15 years, Red Bank Regional High School has provided an engineering program academy as a rich curriculum option for its students. RBR’s Academy of Engineering program is modeled on curriculum developed from Project Lead the Way (a non-profit organization that develops educational S.T.E.M programs in conjunction with industry).

Since its inception, it has more than doubled its enrollment with over 120 students enrolled this year, of which nearly 20% are female.  This fairly represents the percentage of women who graduate college with engineering degrees; however, RBR is one of the few schools that give students a real flavor for the industry prior to attending college.
