Lied STEM Academy

STEM Tank: Every semester, Lied STEM Academy hosts their 2-3 day STEM Tank. Students work all semester to create a product, design, machine, or code for a pre-selected theme such as Cerebral Palsy or Energy Efficiency. This event is open to the business community to view the students’ projects as “sharks.” To read more about STEM Tank, click here.

Renovations: The school is currently undergoing renovations and needs help! If you would like to get involved and help out, please email Kristy Livingston at kristy@snhba.com.

Job Site Tours

SNHBA is dedicated to showing students the benefits of a career in construction. What better way than on a job site?

In 2018, we partnered with the Clark County School District to bring middle and high school students onto active job sites. Students and teachers had the opportunity to put on hard hats and safety vests to learn how homes in the valley are built. We want to thank Pardee Homes, Woodside Homes, and Desert Truss and Lumber for opening their job sites to the students. If your company is interested in hosting a Job Site Tour, please email Kristy Livingston at kristy@snhba.com.

SNHBA’s Young Professionals Network (YPN) is the newest group to the association.
