 T-STEM Webinar Series

In the fall of 2021, the National Network for the Transportation Workforce (NNTW) hosted two Transportation STEM webinars focused on student career pathways that lead to employment as a transportation industry professional. Presented to students and faculty of K-12 institutions, these webinars offer academic and career-path perspective from diverse panels of community college, technical school, and university students, with the goal of engaging the audience around the possibilities and opportunities that a career in the transportation sector can offer.
