Idaho State University Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering will host two one-week 2015 Summer Transportation Institute (STI) programs for the middle school participants July 6-10 or July 13-17.
Applications for the camp are due no later than Monday, June 22. Applications after this date will be considered if space is available.
The camp will run from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. weekdays. The purpose of the program is to create awareness and stimulate interest in participants to take full advantage of the opportunities that exist in the transportation industry.
The STI program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration and is open to participants attending public and private schools across Idaho.
The STI is a structured learning opportunity for youth who completed seventh and eighth grade in the 2014-15 academic year. The curriculum will expose participants to science and engineering and potential careers in those areas. In addition, students will participate in academic enhancement activities, field trips and hands-on projects.
Participants will receive full scholarships to participate in the one-week STI programs. Scholarships will include the following: tuition, workshops/handouts, facility usage, equipment/supplies, travel to Ogden, Utah, for a one-day field trip, lunches and speakers.
