Reid Meets with Foothill High Students

Reid Meets with Foothill High Students

Nevada Senator Harry Reid met this week with students from Foothill High School in his Washington, D.C. office.  More than a dozen students from the Henderson high school were visiting the city as part of a national program that brings students from across the country to Washington to learn about our nation's capitol.

"It was a pleasure to meet with these impressive students about the importance of participating in our democratic process," Reid said. "These aspiring teachers, nurses, engineers and entrepreneurs are the future of Nevada. I will continue fighting to ensure Nevada schools like Foothill High School have the resources and tools necessary to help make their dreams a reality."

The students were visiting through the Close Up Foundation, a non-profit organization that brings students from across the country to Washington, D.C. to learn about the operations of the federal government.

High School Students Take Part in Robotics Competition

Robotics students from 10 Clark County School District (CCSD) schools will compete in the 2011 Las Vegas Regional FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition that will take place on Friday and Saturday at the Thomas & Mack Center on the UNLV campus. The opening of competition will be at 9 a.m. each day. The event is free and open to the public.

The robotics competition immerses high school students in the world of design, engineering and technology and this competition requires students to collaborate with professional mentors to design and build a champion robot in just six weeks. The popularity of this event continues to grow as back in 2005, only three local high schools competed in this event. Participating local high schools include: Arbor View, Basic, Boulder City, Cimarron-Memorial, Clark, Coronado, Rancho, Southwest Career & Technical Academy and Valley.
