We had a fantastic day exhibiting for the first time and met a whole host of brilliant people. We also teamed up with Rowena Fielding from Protecture to present a hugely informative talk on the new General Date Protection Regulation (GDPR). Every seat was filled and lots of notes were taken as Rowena delivered a fantastic talk. 

If you missed the talk and worried you're not ready for GDPR (coming into force May 2018) give us a call and our team, along with Rowena,  can ensure you and your business are ready!

We were thrilled to recently support local primary school, St Keyna, with their recent Computing Week. Our resource boxes, including robots, went down brilliantly and the feedback has been fantastic.

Richard Eaton, Deputy Head Teacher at St Keyna Primary School commented , "In 2017 we held our first Computing week at St Keyna Primary. Without the support of Soltech and the free use of their resource boxes, it wouldn't have happened. As it was, the week provided an excellent opportunity for IT to be showcased and explored. We had dancing robots to launch the week in assembly and a carousel of activities for classes to partake in through the week. Our children loved their learning, accomplished lots of programing and were thoroughly inspired by the IT on offer."

Think this is something we can help your school with or would like to know more about our education IT resources and services, get in touch
