Gorge MakerSpace

Gorge MakerSpace

The makerspace movement, a worldwide community of inventors, crafters and tinkerers, believes that learning is best done through doing.  At Gorge MakerSpace, young people learn the fundamental principles of science, technology, and math through their own creations—and have fun doing so. Since opening in the spring of 2014, Gorge MakerSpace has offered over 45 different classes, camps and workshops involving over 420 Gorge kids.

Located in the Fellowship Hall at the Bethel Church in White Salmon, Gorge MakerSpace offers after-school classes, weekend workshops, and week-long camps in electronics, 3D printing, e-textiles, and various recycled crafts for students 8 to 18 years old.

Coats for Kids
 

Coats for Kids

Coats For Kids is a grassroots organization begun by Sharon Scott, a retired teacher from Henkle Middle School. As a teacher, Sharon saw the tremendous need for warm coats, hats and gloves for middle and elementary school students. The program is about the dignity of each child.

As an exchange of new and lightly used warm clothing between White Salmon, Trout Lake and Hood River elementary and middle schools, the project has been embraced by the participating communities with generous donations from individuals and corporate partners.

The program is currently looking for volunteer coordinators. Please contact WGAP for more information.
