GIS "Crash Course" for High School Girls with ChickTech

Saturday, March 10, 2018, 9:00am to 4:00pm PST

 

Registration is open to female and female-identified students currently in high school.

The spatial mapping of events has been evolving as a major method of analysis for centuries. Join us at this one-day workshop for high school girls to become familiar with these concepts, by working with vehicle crash data from the City of Portland.

The workshop, held in the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) lab of PSU’s Engineering Building, consists of a morning instruction session and an afternoon applied activity using their newfound GIS skills. Students will be introduced to the basic elements of ArcGIS — including importing data, exploring the variables and searching through the spatial database, and processing the data in different ways.

The day also includes a lunchtime walking tour of active transportation infrastructure around the Portland State University campus. By the end of the day you will have a working understanding of spatial mapping and new ideas for how you can apply them to your city!

PlacesForBikes Tape Measure Tour

Monday, June 11, 2018, 8:00am PDT to Friday, June 15, 2018, 5:00pm PDT

PeopleForBikes study tours combine networking meetings with local experts, site visits by bike, and discussions on how to bring the best ideas from world-class bike infrastructure to cities back home.

The Tape Measure Tour is designed for transportation engineers, urban planners, and others interested in in-depth engineering and planning examples of bikeway innovation. This tour covers the fundamentals of bikeway design through an intensive week of interactive classroom sessions, field tours and design exercises.

Offered in partnership with Portland State University’s Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation (IBPI), this 5-day workshop is typically eligible for ~30 hours of training, the equivalent of 30 CMs or 30 PDHs. IBPI applies to the AICP for Certification Maintenance credit for each course. We will provide an attendance certificate to those who document their professional development hours.

The cost to attend is $5,500 per person and includes five-nights single occupancy hotel room, all meals, all ground transportation, bike rental, course materials, speaker fees and professional guides. Note airfare is not included in this fee.

Study Abroad: Sustainable Transportation in the Netherlands

Monday, June 25, 2018, 8:00am PDT to Friday, July 6, 2018, 5:00pm PDT

NEW DATES: June 25 - July 6, 2018

Brought to you by our Initiative for Bicycle and Pedestrian Innovation program, this four-credit, two-week course presents an introduction to transportation engineering applications in the European context. It will build on earlier courses with a special emphasis on differences between U.S. and Dutch standards, and will feature material that provides a contrast between engineering and planning principles and policies.

Furthermore, specific emphases on engineering and planning principles and practice will be explored through field trips and in guest lectures both while abroad and in Portland. Students completing this course will have a greater understanding of the contrast in policies between communities in U.S. and the Netherlands. No previous language study required.

Come rent your fiets and experience some of the best biking infrastructure in the world!
