Last week, ten seventh and and eighth grade GMS students attended a VDOT-sponsored event accompanied with instructors, Amy Spoonhower and Anne Moore. Dozens of women in fields that ranged from engineering to paleontology presented, mentored, and worked with the girls to solve transportation dilemmas. Using aerial photographs, students determined where stop lights, cameras, and signage should be placed within a determined budget. Students also constructed bridges within challenging deadlines.
Students experienced a tour of Richmond to see the locations of current and future VDOT projects.
