We're proud to work with students of all ages to help educate and inspire the next generation of driving researchers, and to share our research with other professionals around the world.
Through SAFER-SIM, we use interactive webinars, video series, and other virtual opportunities to share our expertise.
And once it's safe to do so, we look forward to again attending in-person events and hosting facility tours to continue sharing our passion and expertise in driving research. In the meantime, we're working on expanding our virtual opportunities.
We work with University of Iowa students in all phases of their college careers, and we offer internships to high school students.
The Tier 1 University Transportation Center uses webinars, symposia, video series, and other virtual opportunities to share its researchers’ expertise with people around the world, both young learners and experienced researchers.
We are partnering with Iowa schools and educational groups in a new program called Driving Science, tailored to each school to give free, virtual lessons around applied math and science related to the science of driving.
