Spreading the joy of tech at MESTival

We were delighted to take part in the MESTival festival at St Swithun’s School in Winchester this week.

With over 1,000 students from years 5-13 attending from across Hampshire, the festival aimed to give those attending lots of information about, as well as inspiration for, the STEM careers of science, technology, engineering and maths.

Our aim was to demonstrate the joy of tech and how rewarding a career where you can change people’s lives can be – and our demo showing just how easy coding can be to get in to went down well.

Naturally, we also didn’t miss the opportunity to explain why the Internet of Me is the way forward for personal data and privacy, as young people now will arguably be the biggest benefactors of this in years to come.

With exhibitors including the Army and Navy, a host of STEM-related activities including rocket-powered cars, plus lots of information on potential careers and universities, hats off to St Swithun’s for organising an excellent MESTival!

  1. Hey guys…love your apps from Socialsafe. Question…what happened to the Likes app? Are you going to update it or is it done? Do any of your other apps have the same functionality as it? (Save pics from Instagram). Thanks

    1. HI – glad to hear you love our apps! Likes is no more, but we now have a digi.me iOS app that saves pics from Instagram and other channels (although the API has limited what all devs can draw down, so pictures you liked from private accounts are currently inaccessible.) Thanks
