HyperStream exposes students to different technologies

     Twice a month, West Fork students in fifth through eighth-grades participate in an after school club called HyperStream, led by tech teacher Jennifer Otten.

     “HyperStream is a state program that exposes students to different types of technology,” Otten said.

     The state program is for grades 5-12, but West Fork currently only has the fifth through eighth-grade component, and it is in its third year at West Fork.
