Camp session introduces White Earth Nation students to transportation

Last week, the Roadway Safety Institute (RSI) introduced White Earth Nation students to transportation-related topics as part of the White Earth Indian Reservation Summer Academy of Math and Science.

The two-week day camp uses hands-on learning and Indian culture to teach students in grades 4 to 8 about math, science, and engineering. It is offered in partnership by the White Earth Nation and the University of Minnesota Extension. This is the third year RSI has participated in the program.

This year’s session included a lesson on how plants used in roadside vegetation can improve the environment, help pollinators, and control snow. Another lesson, co-taught by Minnesota Toward Zero Deaths program regional coordinator Tom Nixon, focused on safety and distraction.
