The Idaho State University Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering is holding a two-week non-residential National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI) program from June 10 to June 21 for seventh- and eighth-grade middle school students.

Students interested in the program are encouraged to apply immediately. The program will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday-Friday.

The objective of the program is to provide awareness and stimulate interest in secondary school students to take advantage of opportunities that exist in the transportation industry. Selected students will receive a full scholarship that covers tuition, meals, laboratory usage, supplies and field trip costs.

Daily transportation will be provided to and from Sho-Ban Jr. High for students in Bingham County. A maximum of 26 students will be selected. The program will run daily, Monday – Friday. There is a two-night field trip to Boise June 11-13 during the program.  Students will be housed at a hotel with strict guidelines and chaperones. Parents are welcome to join as chaperones. 

Students will participate in a variety of hands-on activities in science and engineering as well as participate in robotic cars, friendly competitions, and classroom instruction to enhance academic and technology skills.

Students interested in the NSTI program should contact Bruce Savage at savabruc@isu.edu as soon as possible to receive the application form.
