Computer Labs

Did you know that many Minneapolis Recreation Centers have state-of-the-art computer labs available to the public at no fee? Come to the labs for homework help, to design artwork, read email, or browse the Internet.

The labs offer computer-based activities, interactive games, classes and educational software for users of all ages. Depending on the Rec Center's requests, classes may include Computer Fundamentals, Internet Basics, Email Basics, Introduction to Microsoft Word, etc. Most classes are free.

Users learn the importance and function of operating systems and how to manage files and folders. Using Word and Publisher applications, they can create scrapbooks, greeting cards and posters, to name just a few of the possibilities. Expert volunteer staff is on hand to guide and teach the many nuances of computer technology. Special fee-based programs are offered in such areas as computer repair fundamentals.

Osiris

The MPRB has a technology initiative in collaboration with Osiris, a nonprofit organization, to bring open public access to computer technology to park participants in the MPRB public parks. Through its fundraising efforts, Osiris provides equipment, software and youth employment and provides all of the computer center construction, networking and technical support for the centers.
