The Level 2 Tech Center is your free technology work space. Regardless of your skill level, we have the staff, equipment, software and training to help you meet your goals. The Level 2 Tech Center includes:
- Public computers with high speed internet & Microsoft software
- CoLab rooms for 1-3 people with conference table, 42″ monitor, webcam, speakers & software
- Fully-equipped recording studios for audio and video recording
- Design center with Macs, Adobe Creative Suite, Cricut, 3D printer, 3D scanner and laminator
Schedule an orientation appointment to learn to use a recording studio or the design center. Once you’ve learned the basics of how the equipment works, you can schedule time in these spaces to work on whatever you’d like – podcasts, videos, photo editing, graphic design, vinyl lettering or almost anything else you dream up.
How you might use the Tech Center
Whether you’re a noob (newbie), pro or hacker when it comes to tech we can help you level up your tech game. The friendly and knowledgeable staff in the Level 2 Tech Center are here to help make that happen.
Walks in not really wanting to touch tech equipment but knowing they need to level up if they’re going to get that dream job. Sets up a Job Help appointment with our crackerjack Business and Careers Team and a Gadget Help appointment with our skilled Tech Team. Comes back because it’s not quite as scary as it seemed at first. Walks out with pro computer skills to add to their resume.
Wants to try their hand at creating a podcast but doesn’t really know where to start. Sets up an orientation meeting with our Tech Team to learn how to use the recording studio. Takes a few LinkedIn Learning classes on podcasts, makes a plan and starts recording. First podcast done and ready for more. Starts to be known as Podcast Hacker around town (well, maybe just to their friends).
Ready to start that Etsy side hustle but doesn’t have the money to buy the design software or the design equipment. Sets up an orientation meeting for the Digital Arts Studio with the Tech Team to get independent use of the equipment. Spends much of their free time designing, redesigning and finally 3D printing the cutest, most perfect cat accessory ever. Sells out in the first week.
