Gorge career Challenge

The Gorge Career Challenge brings real-life career connections to your classroom through a one-period, fully-developed lesson + a student challenge related to how a local company uses its technology to help our world. This year the STEM Hub partnered with Hood River-based Overwatch Imaging for the challenge.
