The Technology Resource Center at Ignition Park, where people go to learn digital skills, has always bridged the physical and online worlds. It’s now turning to Bendable to extend that bridge. The city-run center is creating a “Bendable Board”—a bulletin board featuring QR code links to courses on coding, project management and more. The staff also hopes that community members will use the space to study, learn together and collaborate. “Bendable is a wonderful platform,” said Denise Riedl, chief innovation officer for the City of South Bend. “TRC is a great in-person complement to that.”
