Wind Challenge returns to CGCC

February 20, 2019

The seventh annual Wind Challenge returns to the Gorge on March 16 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 sponsored by Google, in partnership with Columbia Gorge Community College and the Gorge Technology Alliance. The event also showcases a free, fun STEM Fair from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. with hands-on activities to engage students and the general public. Everyone is welcome!

Volunteers are still needed, and no experience is necessary. Volunteers can enjoy the fun, be well-fed and take home a t-shirt for just a few hours of their time. Learn more or volunteer at
