HOUGHTON, Mich. — Tracks to the Future, the summer railroad transportation and engineering program for high school students, has set the dates for two sessions of its program to be held at six college campuses across the country. The program is free to students thanks to sponsorship by the Federal Railroad Administration through a workforce development grant.
Each session features two days of virtual activities at the student’s home location, a travel day to campus sites, and two days of hands-on activities and field trips to rail-industry locations.
Session 1 will take place June 19-23 at Michigan Tech University, the University of South Carolina, and California State University-Fresno. Session two will be July 17-21 at the University of New Mexico, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Penn State-Altoona. Registration is available here. Information on the 2022 edition of the program is available here.
