2017 National Summer Transportation Institute

The National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI) is a summer program geared toward Oklahoma students who are entering their freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior year of high school. It is a two-week residential experience that will allow students to explore several aspects of the transporation industry through interactive projects, field trips, and live demonstrations. NSTI will be held on Oklahoma State University's Stillwater campus and is FREE of charge for all participants.

During this camp students will:

  • Learn how different parts of the transportation system work together to keep you (and the things you buy) moving in cars, trucks, planes, and boats
  • Design and construct a model speed boat
  • Explore the evolving world of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)
  • Take a trip to the Port of Catoosa
  • Learn about college life and what it takes to be a successful college student

This summer program will take place July 17-28, 2017.
