Summer Youth Program 2020 Tentative Dates Announced!

RTP is proud to announce the dates for the 11th annual Rail and Intermodal Transportation Summer Youth Program (SYP). Our annual weeklong exploration for High School Students will take place in late June or early July.  Tentative date is June 21-27, but we are still coordinating with our field trip sites.  The program is based out of Michigan Tech's Houghton, Michigan campus, along with field visits throughout the Lake Superior region. Applications will be available on the SYP website sometime before the end of 2019. Click here for a pdf copy of the advance flyer.

Be sure to check out this link to last year's program, to get an idea of what we have to offer! Also, you can call Dave Nelson with any questions, or email him at
