On April 24, 2014, The Innevation Center hosted the Southwest Career and Technical Academy’s Capstone presentations. The Southwest CTA is a magnet high school in Las Vegas that offers eleven different educational paths that students take over a four-year program. When applying, students choose an educational path: the Professional Service Academy or the Design Academy.
“In tonight’s event the students are getting a chance to use our state-of-the-art facilities to present their Capstone projects to the rest of their classmates and families,” the team at The Innevation Center reported on their blog. “This event doesn’t just benefit the technology students at Southwest CTA; the culinary students are preparing all of the food for tonight’s 200 attendees!”

Every Saturday from 12 to 3 pm beginning April 26 and ending May 24, Neon Initiative & the Las Vegas Urban League will host “Learn to Code,” a 5-week program to teach 8th graders to build their own personal website.
“From novice to pro, the course is designed to get students familiar with basic web technologies. The course covers HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, the creation of a portfolio, and an exciting demo & field trip on the final day,” the team at The Innevation Center reported on their blog.
