WICHITA — A year ago, a prominent Wichitan approached Office This developer Max Cole with an idea for a school to teach adults and children digital video, audio, web design and game art (the art of making video games).
Cole thought it was a great idea but he wasn’t interested in doing schools at the time.
His connection with Bethel House Training Institute, a school at Office This that teaches nursing assistants and other medical personnel, changed that.
So this summer, Cole — with help from the unnamed prominent Wichitan — is opening Mindfire Academy in 50,000 square feet at Office This, which is at 4031 E. Harry.
He’s beginning to build the technology training rooms now.
“That’s what everybody’s interested in,” Cole says.
