The Mendoza Elementary B.R.I.C.K. Academy

Neon Museum

Who knew you could learn so much from signs? On this spectacular tour, the BRICKsters learned about the history of Las Vegas in such a unique way. From the strip to Boulder City, the history of one of the world’s more interesting cities was told through the neon signs that make it so famous. We were told of history about the Hoover Dam and Boulder City, famous residents such as Elvis and Howard Hughes, racial integration and architecture and so much more. We then were even treated to a read-aloud and some activities with the library. It was truly an amazing experience for all students.
