workforce training. nevada's economy has been growing -- with unemployment dropping to 6.4 percent. that's the lowest rate since 2008. but the governor says he is not satisfied. gov. sandoval "we still have one of the highest unemployment rates in the nation. so i, every day, am going to continue to work to diversify our economy and bring more jobs to nevada." economists say the jobs lost during the recession could be completely recovered by the end of the year. and sandoval says he will continue his work to diversify nevada's economy. in campaign 2016... new hampshire is the new battleground in the race to the white house. the first primary is a little more than a week away and the candidates are blanketing the state with rallies and appearances. danielle nottingham reports from new hampshire. ted cruz is riding high after his big win in iowa. texas we need to take power out of washington and give it to we the

don't feel like their hard work pays off. that's not the way america is supposed to operate. i want to go to bat for them every single day. get incomes rising... get equal pay for women... cut the cost of health care and child care so people can actually get ahead. hillary clinton, she has what it takes to get things done.
new at 11... tonight the tahoe expedition academy hosted their celebration of learning event... where the school's students presented what they're calling "globally- conscious" final projects. that's right.. teachers from the school say the students are encouraged to develop a product with a vision of making a difference in the world. ryan canaday was at tonight's event and joins us now live in the newsroom. ryan are these projects as impressive as they sound? they really are ari, i was blown away by some of the things these kids created in just a single school semester. i asked some of the students what they enjoyed the most about making their projects. and while some of them liked the creative thinking and the problem solving...many of them said it was great to just have
"student" by the end of just one school semester, so in this case about four months time, eight grader ryan o'toole was able to create this... ryan o'toole-8th grade-"an electric skateboard adaptor that can turn any skateboard into a scooter." "scooter" but that sounds pretty tough... where would you even start? "i had to design some parts in fusion 360, to be able to mill and print and plasma cut out, so that i can make it possible for my scooter to come to true." and it did come true.. he brought the scooter to life.. but it wasn't just this scooter..and ryan wasn't alone.. at the tahoe expedition academy many of the other students, even the younger ones, have put their creative minds to work.. "first we learned about inventors and inventors solve problems." "this uses less electricity to convert energy." and they've accepted the
experiential learning. "these products are culminations of academic work that they do in the classroom as well as field work that they do outside of the classroom ." "they have a purpose to this work that they're doing and that is key to sort of this intrinsic motivation they have for learning and we believe it foster's this love of learning for a life time." for many of these students, they learn from each other. and they've also grown an appreciation for the hardwork their peers have put in. "seeing all of these people check out all of our products, i mean mine is pretty cool but there's a lot of kids here who spent tons of time into making these things come true and they've really, they're trying to push the industry and it's really cool." the tahoe expedition academy has also been growing more and more. as a result the school is set to establish a multi-million dollar campus outside of truckee in the coming months. covering the
turning to money watch... reno has become an up and coming hot spot for all you foodies out there... the washoe county health department issued more than 525 food permits in the last fiscal year alone. and with that... new spots in town are redefining casual dining. michael tragash- "we're seeing a lot more business owners take a little bit more risk and put a lot more emphasis on the experiences they are offering guests and the concepts that they are bringing to the community." traygash, with yelp says this risk is paying off for restaurateurs who are stirring the appetites of "foodies" with more diverse food and exotic ingredients. one leader in the culinary community -- chef clint jolly -- has proven this recipe for success. jolly is the owner of great thyme catering - and a recent winner of the food network show, "chopped." clint jolly- "i think people in
focus more on managing the experience and something a little bit more than nice table cloths and art on the walls, but serving things a different way." some of the most successful restaurants in reno are those that not only focus on the food they serve... but the way their customers dine. and speaking of good eats...roberto's taco shop has now expanded to reno. the location on 8th street and north virginia opened its doors for the first time last night... and is the first in northern nevada. the chain started in san diego in 19-64 and now has about 20 locations there... 40 more in las vegas. owner reynaldo robledo says he decided to open up shop here after hearing from university students who've been asking for a reno location for years. and get this-- the restaurant drew in crowds so huge... they had to shut down their doors at 7 o-clock tonight!
out of food. i've opened 40-something restaurants in vegas and this has never happened before. "we just got overwhelmed. bottom line. robledo says the reno restaurant saw about 400 customers today. he apologized to customers who were still trying to get into the restaurant more than an hour later... "i sincerely apologize to all the customers because i know they have been waiting for us.
