Roads Scholars Visit TRC


On August 31, 2011 The Ohio State University’s (OSU) Roads Scholars visited Transportation Research Center (the Center), as part of their annual two-day traveling seminar. This annual seminar is specially designed for new and newly tenured faculty, new administrators, and student leaders. It highlights partnerships in Ohio and it opens doors to new and innovative collaborations.

TRC was one of the many Ohio locations that the group visited during the seminar including, the Center of Science and Industry (COSI), The Ohio State University Marion location, Wyandot Solar, overnight stay in Sandusky, Stone Lab on Gibraltar Island, and Columbus State Community College. During the visit to TRC, the group, which included OSU President E. Gordon Gee, had the opportunity to view a crash test in the Center’s Impact Laboratory. Also during the visit, students from the OSU Center for Automotive Research (CAR) presented some of their work on the ECOCAR and the Formula SAE vehicle. The seminar concluded the TRC visit with a lap around the Center’s 7.5-Mile Test Track.
