Since its opening a year-and-a-half ago, E::SPACE Labs has been working hard to provide technical training opportunities for Central Oregonians. E::SPACE offers engineering design services for startups and established businesses, as well as training courses in electronic hardware development, product development and entrepreneurship. And they’ve recently ramped up their education efforts via a partnership with Central Oregon Community College.
The duo offered five joint courses last fall and another 10 joint courses this winter. Though many are already underway for this quarter, a few don’t begin until next month including Intro to Python, Rasberry Pi 2/3 and a Startup Product Development course. We caught up with E::Space’s co-founders Rick Silver and Dave Robson to learn more about the gaps they see in tech education here, the COCC partnership and their passion for helping entrepreneurs and inventors.
