Opening Spring 2020
So, you know how people struggle with technology?
Well we’re creating a centre at the heart of the community where we build and fix and you play and learn.
That’s all well and good, but what does that mean to you?!
We all have technology in our lives, unless you live in a cave, even then…. You use technology. I know this because you are reading this on a screen.
Technology doesn’t always go right. Sometimes it goes horribly wrong. Most of us have experienced a broken phone screen, a virus on your laptop or a failed hard drive resulting in a loss of precious photographs. We understand that it’s more than just a gadget, it’s a means of communication, a lifeline, a storer of memories.
We created IT Central originally back in 2015, to support people and their technology, whilst respecting and protecting the things that are before them. IT Central technicians are taken on as apprentices and trained to our exacting standards. 99% of repairs are carried out on site and we keep customers in the loop every step of the way.
The Amazing Technology Centre contains so much more, turning an old, unloved building back into a space open to all.
The Tech Club offers a wraparound childcare service for young people between the ages of 8 and 13. This consists of a daily After-School Club and Holiday Clubs.
Our Noodle Bar will be the only one in the area. The nearest one is Aberdeen and there isn’t one in Inverness. You must get your noodle fix somewhere!!!
VR is the shape of gaming in the future. We will have games that are not available in the public domain. It’s an opportunity to go and play in the same space. The first and only VR Studio of its kind in North Scotland.
Schools will be very welcome, visits will be interesting and interactive with our Museum of Modern Technology in the centre of the building, through to the Engage VR platform providing an immersive and experiential activity covering aspects of the STEM curriculum as well as other subjects by bringing it alive.
As an accredited SQA Centre we will be able to offer a range of IT courses including PC Passport.
So, as you can see, this is a huge step from our wee shop on South Street, but one that we have been working towards for the last three years. We have the most amazing staff team with the passion and energy to drive this forward. It’s going to be quite a journey!
