ROCAME is a 501c(3) non-profit charitable organization. It was established in 1979 by area industry and education leaders to provide a sound and viable program to encourage all minority students to enter the fields of math, science, engineering and technology. Since its inception, ROCAME has provided the opportunity and catered to thousands of students in Brunswick, Columbus, Pender and New Hanover Counties to participate in the program. The program’s platform fosters team work, public speaking, math skills, science skills, circuit knowledge, architecture, programming, communication, chemistry concepts, research and presentation skills and robotics. These skilled areas are geared toward an engineering based program that contributes in preparing middle and high school students for a variety of roles in engineering. Our intent is to increase awareness, participation and training through education and competition that will assist in expanding preparedness and opportunities for minorities in engineering.
Being apart of a ROCAME program gives participating students the opportunity to apply for a scholarship and the "Student of the Year" award. These awards will assist students with the rising costs of college; will help to get them started. Application links are found within the News & Events page. Become apart of ROCAME and apply today!
