The College of Southern Nevada will hold its 16th annual Science & Technology Expo next month on the North Las Vegas Campus.
As science and technology become ever more important in our lives and careers, our educational institutions must keep pace. CSN remains committed to providing the tools necessary for the success of the next generation of tech leaders.
More than 2,000 Clark County School District students are expected to attend from schools across the valley. The public is also welcome to the free event, which is put on in cooperation with the Nevada Contractors Association and CCSD.
“I am extremely pleased to continue our long partnership with CCSD on this event,” said CSN President Dr. Federico Zaragoza. “Having the Nevada Contractors Association join us this year to establish a new partnership will help us remain connected to the local workforce and responsive to the needs of one of our region’s most important industries.”
Traditionally, the expo has featured science experiments and displays designed to entertain and educate the school children, such as a chemistry magic show, an aviation simulator, drone demonstrations, planetarium shows and more. While all of that will remain, this year’s expo will also feature hands-on construction exhibits and displays of construction technology in an effort to highlight the ever-important and rapidly growing careers in the construction industry.
“It’s important that students of all ages become excited about science and technology,” said Dr. Michael Spangler, dean of CSN’s School of Advanced & Applied Technologies. “The data are proving what we have been saying for years: Career opportunities in science and technology fields are growing, wages remain high, and they are critical to our regional, state and national economy.”
