ACTUS supported The Good Life Run and the Student Ministries of Central Church on April 28th. Hundreds of people come out to take a stand against teen depression in the Las Vegas Valley. It was an honor for our ACTUS team to also stand with Central as they highlighted the very serious and growing issue of teen depression.
The student program at Central Church is committed to helping teens across the valley live “The Good Life.” Here is a link to a brief video recap of their event:
DID YOU KNOW THAT…A Civil Engineer created the slippery part of the water slide??!! A Civil Engineer designed a pumping system to circulate just the right amount of water to the flume. Without the right flow of water, there is no ride. Additionally, Civil Engineers have designed the slide to withstand the weight of people, the water, and even the force of the wind blowing on it.
DID YOU KNOW…The Ferris Wheel is considered one of the greatest engineering wonders in the world?!! The first Ferris Wheel was created by Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania engineer, George W. Ferris, in 1893. The wheel is supported by two 140-foot steel towers and connected by a 45-foot axle — the largest single piece of forged steel ever made at that time!!
