The Gorge Technology Alliance invites the community to a Feb. 26 gathering for a discussion on higher educational initiatives to support science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) opportunities in the Gorge.
Networking starts at 6:30 p.m. at the White Buffalo, 4040 Westcliff Dr., Hood River.
Cost is $10 for non-GTA members; appetizers are provided.
Oregon State University Open Campus Coordinators Dani Annala (Hood River County) and Lynette Black (Wasco County) will join Columbia Gorge Community College faculty Dr. Kevin McCabe to discuss their initiatives.
OSU is working on establishing an Open Campus in our region to further develop the universities’ resources available in our community, especially those with a STEM focus.
CGCC is looking to create a two-year engineering certification that will support the region’s businesses at many levels. The presenters hope to engage in a conversation with the community about this process, the needs in our region, and business workforce requirements to ensure that their efforts prepare our residents for jobs available here.
The Gorge Technology Alliance supports, connects and develops the technology community of the Columbia River Gorge. It meets each month with networking and educational opportunities. For questions about the GTA, contact Executive Director Jessica Metta at 541- 296-2266 or Jessica@crgta.org.
