Cultivating a strong workforce begins with engaging our community’s youth (About| Las Vegas Science and Technology Festival). The festival provided an impactful effort, providing accessible information about STEM field careers through free educational activities, hands-on projects, and engagement for students of all ages.
This year, the Nevada Water Environmental Association had the same goal: inspire youth to envision new possibilities and career paths within the science behind water resourcing and its treatment. Our volunteer team was made up of operators, engineers, and analysts from all over Las Vegas. Connections and memories were made by having the opportunity to share and explain to students the environmental importance of protecting our water.
