Maine Summer Transportation Institute Academic Camp
As participants in the annual transportation institute, up to 20 students from the greater Bangor area will get a close look at careers in engineering and transportation.
The institute will run each day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the two weeks and is free. The event is cosponsored by the Maine Department of Transportation, the UMaine College of Engineering, and the Federal Highway Administration. It is designed to introduce students at an early age to jobs and careers available in Maine’s transportation industry.
Accepted students will participate in field trips, leadership and team-building activities, and a series of age-appropriate workshops, with hands-on laboratory experiences all related to transportation mode, safety and products, alternative fuels, construction materials, and computer-aided design. Students also will participate in recreational activities at the Student Recreation and Fitness Center. The majority of the daylong activities will take place at the Bion and Dorain Foster Student Innovation Center, at different engineering labs and at various off-campus locations.
