Build It!
Build It! photo

From roads and homes to schools and businesses, building and construction are a constant part of everyone's life. Build It! puts children in the heart of it all as they explore the entire process from drafting plans to choosing building materials and working toward energy conservation. Build It! also brings Nevada's vast solar and geothermal energy resources indoors and puts their power into the hands of young people.

Make Your Own Quake exhibit created in partnership with the Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulation at the University of Nevada, Reno.
