Say Hello to Team Las Vegas

Hello — we are
Team Las Vegas!

Team Las Vegas is representing UNLV in the 2017 Solar Decathlon. As a-led project, team members gain first-hand experience in designing, planning, and constructing a prototype house for an aging in place community in Las Vegas, NV.

We are an interdisciplinary group of students and faculty members, each bringing different backgrounds and expertise to the project. We are excited and proud to represent Team Las Vegas! If you have any questions or just want to drop us a line, feel free to contact us.
