About Wind Challenge

Wind Challenge is a hands-on program that fuels student interest in science, technology and wind energy! This event is brought to the Gorge by the Gorge Tech Alliance, Columbia Gorge Community College and Google.

During the event, teams of middle or high school students learn about wind turbine technology and design, and apply their skills in an all-day competition to build, test, and present their wind turbine models to a group of judges. A hands-on STEM Fair keeps the participants busy and is open to the public for free. 

Prizes are given to the three high school teams and the three middle school teams whose wind turbines had the fastest speed for transferring the kinetic energy and the most electrical power generated.
