Computer lab space needs

Overview

We don't currently have space for a computer/media lab, but instead move our 14 mobile computer training workstation into our meeting room for training when possible. There is so much more we can do with a proper computer lab. Our goals are to:

  • Connect a computer lab to our meeting room space to provide access to community groups;
  • Use adaptive training tables that allow computers to be hidden and secured when not needed;
  • Use adaptive furniture and connected enclosed spaces to provide maker-space services when not being used for training purposes

More computer skills training

Our lack of space has prevented us from expanding on the limited training we already offer, such as Introduction to Programming, Minecraft coding and Basic Information Skills workshops. We have the staff skills to provide more of these workshops on a regularly scheduled basis. We just need the lab.

Accessible to community groups

We plan to connect our computer lab to our meeting room space so that the lab can be accessible and reservable to community groups for their own training needs.
