The fourth annual National Summer Transportation Institute (NSTI) was held at Ferris State University from August 2–8. Twenty-one high school students (ages 14–17) from around the state packed their bags and headed to our Big Rapids campus and Traverse City for a week of transportation fun!

  • Making and breaking concrete cylinders
  • Making asphalt cylinders
