Transportation is a vital component of our society, and there is a need to study transportation systems within all educational settings. The Transportation Education Academy is an eight-day workshop for Minnesota teachers in all disciplines and at all grade levels offered by St. Cloud State University and the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The goal of this eight-day academy is to bring various disciplines, such as math, science, technology, and economics into the classroom by exposing teachers to the systems, modes, and impacts of transportation used today. This material meets graduation standards.
The Transportation Education Academy was created to develop transportation curricula for primary, middle, and high school classrooms. There is a need for educational systems to incorporate a broad understanding of all transportation systems into the classroom. The goal of the academy is to create curricula that will result in transportation literate students who understand the technological, political, economic, social, and environmental areas in which total transportation systems must operate.
