The Southern Plains Transportation Center (SPTC) at the University of Oklahoma hosts the Langston University Transportation Academy (LUTA) annually. LUTA contributes to delivering intervention efforts that are geared toward encouraging high school students to take science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) academic courses. LUTA curriculum involves STEM-focused learning experiences related to land, air, water, and space transportation, and how these modes of transportation interface with each other. During the recent LUTA, students visited the Ken Robson BIM+VIZ Lab, hosted by Dr. Tammy McCuen. Students experienced 3D visualization of transportation projects using virtual reality technology in the state-of-the-art lab located in the Christopher C. Gibbs College of Architecture. Students were provided exposure to and discussion about technology applications in transportation.
