MCC Launches Digital Express
Located at Metropolitan Community College, Digital Express is North Omaha’s newest gathering place where people can come together to access technology, study and collaborate. Digital Express offers personal support to students and families to connect and learn and is a safe place for visitors to use technology. Offerings include technology checkout and support; low-cost technology repair; K-12 educational programming; meeting and family rooms; and print, fax and scan capabilities. The Omaha STEM Ecosystem’s Event Committee had the amazing opportunity to tour Digital Express and is developing a partnership to host future events there.
