YPC Lunch and Learn Presentation – September 22
How MDOT Operations Projects are Selected – presented by John Engle, P.E.
Have you ever wondered about the process of how MDOT operational improvement projects are selected? Have you ever wondered what a funding template is, or what process MDOT follows in selecting operational improvements on its highway network? This Virtual Lunch and Learn discussion, geared toward young professionals, will be led by John Engle, P.E. of the Michigan DOT, and he will help answer these questions as well as provide some practical commentary on how MDOT’s Operations Template selects and funds projects. The one-hour session is free to attend, and will take place September 22, 2021, from 11am-Noon.
To register for the YPC September 22 presentation, please use the link below.
The MTU Center for Science & Environmental Outreach provides after school STEM classes for students at Baraga Elementary and CJ Sullivan Elementary School (L’Anse). Classes are once per week for one hour between 4-6 pm. They may be virtual or in-person. The Center has lots of lessons already to go that an instructor just has to organize supplies for. Classes begin week of Sept. 13
The Center also conducts 1.5-2 hour science field trips during the school day for K-8 classes, which usually take place at their schools. There are already lessons prepared and supply kits ready to go. You can choose times to fit your schedule.
You must have your own car. If you’re interested, please complete this online application.
Feel free to contact Joan Chadde (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions. The supply kits are stored in the forestry building, rather than GLRC, for easy access. We would have a short training with all interested instructors first.
