Free summer camp to explore transportation careers

High school students interested in learning about transportation careers can apply for the National Summer Transportation Institute Camp to be offered July 11-22 at Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City.

OSU-OKC will partner with a variety of industry and government representatives to present the free camp to high schoolers with an interest in science, engineering, technology and transportation. Students will learn what college education is needed for success in these fields, which are experiencing rapid growth and require a qualified workforce.

Participants will take statewide field trips to see Oklahoma’s transportation infrastructure, will visit Oklahoma State University’s laboratory facilities, and will meet industry professionals. 

The institute is funded by the state Transportation Department. Participants must be entering the 10th, 11th or 12th grade, have successfully completed pre-algebra, and have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or above. Applications will be taken under consideration in the order they are received.

To apply go to www.osuokc.edu/tdc.
