High school students can experience transportation in a new way through summer institute while building resume
The National Summer Transportation Institute is back this year with not one, but two locations to choose from: Oklahoma State University in Stillwater and Northeastern State University. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation in partnership with both universities is offering this two-week free and informative camp. Students can enjoy a fun and educational experience this summer exploring careers in the transportation industry while building a resume.
High schoolers interested in science, technology, engineering, math and transportation will take statewide field trips to experience Oklahoma’s transportation infrastructure, see laboratory facilities and meet a variety of business, industry, city, state and federal officials to explore the world of transportation careers. Students will learn what college education is needed for success in these fields while networking with agencies, companies and executives to truly understand what a transportation career entails.
