“We are so excited to host this event and bring our community together to celebrate this wonderful resource,” said John Blythe, McCaw School of Mines Board of Director President. “We’re honored to be able to provide this unique experience to Vegas valley students, and this party is a great way to commemorate the school’s significance in our community.”

Opened in 1996, the “Jewel of the Desert” simulated mine at McCaw Elementary School invites thousands of students annually to learn about mining as well as its history and importance in Nevada. The interactive exhibit allows students a hands-on, educational experience.
