NEES@Nevada is committed to educating students and involving them with our many laboratory projects. Our goal is to educate the public on the importance of earthquake engineering research and provide the opportunity for anyone to come see our amazing earthquake simulation facilities.
Our outreach events engage students from kindergarten through college, and we participate in both on-site and community-based outreach events.
We offer tours of the laboratory to all ages and we would be happy to host your group. Tours can be arranged weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
We host students participating in engineering-related summer camps each year. For more information about summer camps, please visit the College of Engineering's website.
Our facility is home to the Make Your Own Earthquake activity. Challenge your friends to see who can make the biggest earthquake by jumping on a rubber mat.
Each summer, we host students as part of the NEES Research Experience for Undergraduates. Students have the opportunity to assist in research projects in our Large Scale Structures Lab and also pariticipate in field trips and other cohort activities.
We offer training in safety, management, and cutting-edge computer software.
To learn more about training opportunities, contact Kelly Doyle at (775) 784-4223 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
