The University of Maine in Orono will host the Maine Summer Transportation Institute (MSTI) 2009 for middle school students from July 13 – July 24, 2009 in the Foster Sudent Innovation Center. The purpose of the Institute is to create awareness and stimulate interest in students to take full advantage of the opportunities that exist in the transportation industry. The MSTI is funded by a grant from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and is opened to students attending public and private schools in the Greater Bangor Area. The Institute is an extremely intense and structured learning opportunity for youth in the middle school systems of Maine.
The curriculum will expose students to new frontiers and adventures such as highway design, alternative fuels, construction materials, transportation of people and cargo, intermodalism, laws, regulations, safety, and career opportunities. In addition, students will participate in computer training, academic enhancement activities, field trips, and student projects.
