2. Team Registration Open for Gorge Wind Challenge

wind-turbinesTeam registration is now open for the fourth annual Wind Challenge blowing to the Gorge on March 11 at the Fort Dalles Readiness Center in The Dalles.  During the Wind Challenge, teams of high school and middle school students from across the Gorge learn about wind turbine technology and design, and apply their skills in an all-day competition to race against the clock in building the strongest, fastest wind turbine. This event is completely free for teams to compete for awesome prizes and no advance preparation is required. Teams of three to six students may be registered now at windchallenge.org. Deadline is January 28.

This event is sponsored by Google and put on as a partnership between the Gorge Technology Alliance (GTA), Google and Columbia Gorge Community College (CGCC). A fun, hands-on STEM Fair is also part of the day, with free activities to engage students and the general public.

Volunteers are being recruited as well – no experience necessary! Enjoy the fun, be well-fed and take home a t-shirt for just a few hours of your time! Sign up to volunteer at windchallenge.org.  Contact Event Coordinator Jessica Metta with questions at 541-296-2266 or jessica@crgta.org.

 4. Presentation on Unmanned Programs at Oregon State University, Jan. 24

The Gorge Technology Alliance (GTA) invites everyone to our January 24, 2017 Featured Event to hear the exciting ways Oregon State University (OSU) is using unmanned (or “drone”) systems on land, in the air and on-water/ underwater in faculty and student research. Unmanned systems research areas include precision agriculture, surveying, geology, ocean and atmospheric science, forestry, robotics, environmental monitoring and remote sensing.

Unmanned systems are bringing innovative capabilities to both business and research. As part of this growing industry, OSU is establishing itself as a center of unmanned systems science, research and commercialization. Several student researchers and Mark Peters, Interim Director Office of Research Integrity, International Compliance, and Unmanned Aerial Systems Operations at OSU will share the cutting-edge work happening in Corvallis and how Gorge companies and individuals can get involved.

The event is Tuesday, Jan 24 at the White Buffalo Wine Bar (4040 Westcliff Dr., Hood River). Join the group for networking at 6:30 p.m. and the presentation around 7:00 p.m. Entrance is $10 for non-GTA members (all students and GTA Members are free) and appetizers are included.

The Gorge Technology Alliance supports, connects and develops the technology community of the Columbia River Gorge with networking and educational events, business support and promotion, workforce development and youth robotics. The GTA is a nonprofit professional organization supporting the high tech businesses and STEM education in the Gorge. Contact Jessica Metta, Executive Director, with questions at 541-296-2266 or learn more at crgta.org.
