Rose State College
The National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI) is a fun, interactive two-week program for high school students held at Rose State College. The Institute is sponsored by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation and Rose State College, and funded through a grant from the Federal Highway Administration.
The Institute provides an active, experiential opportunity for interested high school students entering 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade to explore transportation careers, along with the complex transportation system upon which we all rely. Throughout the entire Institute, students explore the many modes of transportation (air, water, highway, rail, transit), examine how the system is designed, built and maintained through field trips, interactive labs and activities presented by guest speakers on the subject of transportation.
During the program you will
- Learn about planes, trains, ships, and automobiles through cool hands-on activities and group projects.
- Tour the Port of Catoosa and get behind-the-scenes information about the operations of Oklahoma’s inland port.
- Travel to Kansas City, Kansas and learn firsthand about rail travel.
- Visit a highway construction site, Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the Air National Guard.
- Spend your time with other smart students in a vibrant college setting.
This program is a highly competitive scholarship program which provides high school students with an opportunity to investigate careers and educational paths supporting today’s transportation industry and future needs. An application is required for consideration.
