This one-week residence camp offers any student entering the 9–12 grade who identifies as female an immersive introduction to transportation systems and engineering.

Half of each day is spent as a seminar, in the classroom hearing from Oregon Tech faculty and guest lecturers from Blue Zones Project, the Basin Transit Service, the Klamath County Public WorksCity of Klamath Falls, and various other public and private transportation agencies that operate in the Klamath Basin area. The other half is spent outside, in field tours of area transportation infrastructure and public spaces.

Students will work in groups to solve a real-world transportation problem and use the skills they have gained to present a solution at the end of the camp.
