STEM Saturdays
The NNSS wrapped its ever-popular STEM Saturdays series in April with a spotlight on industrial hygienists’ work to protect employees from health hazards. Presented by the NNSS, Clark County School District Career and Technical Education, and the Atomic Museum, STEM Saturdays feature presentations by NNSS subject matter experts who facilitate the connections between STEM and their chosen career path. Nearly 600 members of the community registered this season. Look for the return of STEM Saturdays this fall!

National Rebuilding Day and Month
As proud partner of Rebuilding Together Southern Nevada, which revitalizes the homes of veterans, seniors and individuals with disabilities by providing repairs at no cost to the homeowners, more than four dozen NNSS volunteers assembled in a Henderson, Nevada, neighborhood to provide critical renovations for a couple in need.
