Abstract: 

On April 9, 2013, the Mineta Transportation Institute (MTI) continued its support of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Garrett A. Morgan Technology and Transportation Futures Program by conducting the Thirteenth National Garrett Morgan Symposium and Videoconference on Sustainable Transportation.

The ongoing mission of this national videoconference is to stimulate the minds of young people and to encourage them to pursue challenging academic programs including mathematics and science—an education course that will prepare today’s students for tomorrow’s challenging transportation careers.

Participating schools were: Eagle Prairie School, Rio Dell CA (two teams); Juan Crespi Middle School, El Sobrante CA; Morada Middle School, Stockton CA (two teams); St. John the Baptist, Costa Mesa CA (two teams); and Tupelo Middle School, Tupelo MS.
