2009 Summer Transportation Institute

Missouri LTAP at Missouri University of Science and Technology has hosted a U.S. Department of Transportation Summer Transportation Institute (STI) for the past several years. The program has been very successful and was again offered in Summer 2009. The STI is a 2-week intensive learning experience held during the summer for high school students. It is targeted primarily toward minorities but not limited to them. The following are the goals of STI: 1) To expose secondary school students to and allow them to participate in a series of academic and practice experiences designed to motivate them toward professions in the transportation industry, and 2) To provide secondary school students with mathematics, science and technological enrichment to enable them to pursue a career in the transportation industry. The overarching goal is to increase the number of youths entering the transportation profession and to aid the university in its recruiting efforts. The students (10th, 11th and 12th graders) are subjected to a healthy dose of campus life.
