Real World Connections is a unique program that offers gifted and talented middle and high school students the opportunity to be involved in a fun and hands on educational experience and work with well known companies as well as subject matter experts, alumni, parents, students and faculty of NJIT.
RWC is all about helping your child grow to be the best person they can be. Our program centers on fun and education through interactive, project-based learning experiences, and is completely FREE. These projects help students become more interested in science, technology, engineering, and math by combining their interests with these subjects. Each student joins a team in working on one of these real world projects throughout the semester. We warmly welcome you and your child to our program!
We want you to have fun learning! Instead of stuffy lectures and boring reports, Real World Connections offers you the opportunity to do hands-on projects about what you’re interested in. You and your team will receive all the training and resources you need to complete your project and show it off. In addition, we also have sports days and other events that are purely for fun. We’d love to have you join us!
RWC, founded by Osama Eljabiri, Ph.D., NJIT senior university lecturer and director of the CCS Capstone Program, offers college students and alumni the opportunity to develop tracks for and coach various areas of knowledge using real-world projects scenarios to middle and high school students that enable them to apply their knowledge in technology, business and arts fields for the good of a community. The experiences also allow them to work with local leaders and industry executives.
The game development tracks project is a game created by the students.
The students will learn how to program and make 3D models for video games.
The students are using unity game engine to develop the game and to program with. They are using the C# programming language and are using autodesk maya to 3D model.
Tthe Architectural track is working on a project in which each of the students has the task to design a modular space of their choice. Each of them was given the same boundary. Then we started the project by sketching ideas on paper and convert them into a physical model. This part took several iterations and at the time we arrive at the last version we introduce the use of AutoCad and Laser Cutter to sped the process, of model making. This is what we have done until the brake, now after the break, we are going to use photoshop, Autocad, and Illustrator to finish the drawing and images for the final presentation.
