31ers Educational Outreach
The 31ers Educational Outreach Program focuses on enhancing the Social Studies curriculum for school-age students. Through our 31ers Educational Outreach Program, students will learn about the families who migrated to Southern Nevada during the Great Depression, settled the Boulder Canyon Project Federal Reservation, worked on the construction of Hoover Dam, and created Boulder City through our interactive exhibits, oral history monologues, and hands-on activities.
