  • Basic research on the fundamental forces of nature at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility;
  • Manufacture of nuclear aircraft carriers and submarines at the Newport News Shipyard;
  • Basic and applied research at five universities; and
  • Development and operations at a number of major military facilities.

All school divisions provide a range of science, mathematics and technology curriculum. Some provide engineering curriculum. Some have science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics magnet programs. Advanced programs such as the International Baccalaureate Program and College Boards Advanced Placement courses are widely available.
