How will you be spending your November? 🤔 Come and celebrate the end of exams and the start of the holidays with our fun list of techtivities (tech + activities) while still staying safe!

Did you know that the QWERTY keyboard we have today is designed to slow you down? This is because when typewriters were first introduced, people were able to type very quickly, which then caused the keys to jam!
Now that we’re all warmed up, keep scrolling to discover techtivities that you and your family can indulge in this month! 😉
