STEM Outreach At VDOT

Inspiring The Next Generation Of VDOT Employees


There is more to the Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) than filling potholes and moving snow. Every aspect of VDOT encompasses STEM fields.

We invite students and teachers to explore the variety of careers at VDOT through transportation-themed lessons and hands-on activities.

For questions about our resources or events, contact Angela Parsley, STEM Coordinator: 804-904-2207 or
