Guam Community College is offering two FREE National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI) programs this summer, to allow middle and high school students to explore careers in the transportation industry. The middle school NSTI is the result of a grant award of $20,124 received through the government of Guam’s Department of Public Works, and the high school portion of the program is funded through GCC’s College Access Challenge Grant Program. Both institutes will provide students with field trips to transportation sites around the island and practical, hands-on activities using math skills needed to succeed in the industry.

The National Summer Transportation Institutes include:

  • Field trips to Guam’s major transportation ports: the A.B. Won Pat International Airport, the Port Authority of Guam, and DPW
  • Emergency and safety demonstrations including K- 9 units
  • A tour of the United Airlines maintenance hangar and city ticket office
  • Activities with GCC’s Automotive Service Technology and Heavy Equipment programs, including the opportunity to “drive” GCC’s new truck simulator.
  • Hands-on activities with transportation industry equipment

Middle School NSTI June 17-28 (20 slots available)
