Eastgate Partners on Inaugural “Future of Transportation” Summer Camp

Jul 27, 2018


The Summer Manufacturing Institute, in its fifth year, is a Youngstown pilot to introduce children, grades four through six, to the wonders and possibilities of careers in manufacturing. Eastgate partnered with OH WOW! The Roger & Gloria Jones Children’s Center for Science & Technology and the YWCA of the Mahoning Valley to develop a curriculum to teach campers about transportation planning factors and the adoption of connected and autonomous vehicles. During the week, campers learned about careers in transportation, street design, project development, budgeting, scaling to fit, and soldering. At the end of the week, a city designed and constructed by the campers was used for testing autonomous vehicles along a Smart Mobility Corridor.
