IMESD Tech Expo draws students from throughout the region

By Dick Mason, The La Grande Observer, @lgoMason

The sight was a potentially intimidating one at the InterMountain Education Service District’s Technology Expo on Thursday in La Grande.

The floor of Room 219 in Eastern Oregon University’s Zabel Hall was filled with small piles of cords, a sight complemented by disconnected computer keyboards and monitors on tables everywhere.

High school students walking into the room on Thursday morning were assigned a challenging task — get these computers connected and up and
running in mere minutes. The students succeeded in a big way, quickly adding order to a chaotic looking situation.

Three-member teams, each assigned to one computer, often managed to get get them operating in two minutes or less.

“They did an impressive job,’’ said Kylee Naughton of the InterMountain Education
Service District, noting that many on the student teams had just met each other.
