STEM grants

The Nevada Governor’s Office of Science, Innovation and Technology awarded $335,975 in STEM Workforce Challenge Grants to three Nevada community-based colleges – Truckee Meadows Community College, Western Nevada College and Nevada State College.

TMCC received a grant award of $149,435 that will facilitate the acquisition of training equipment and simulators for the TMCC Applied Technology Center and for the development of the new curriculum in Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration.

The STEM Challenge grant is the result of a partnership with Switch’s SUPERNAP data centers, and grant funds will train many of the 400 HVAC technicians whose work will be in critical systems operations at the new facility.
