About

IIIT Hyderabad announces its School Outreach Program, a summer series of non-residential certification courses for students from classes 5th to 10th. This initiative is to equip young minds with fundamental Computer and Computational Thinking skills that are increasingly pertinent in today's world.

With Information & Communication Technologies growing pervasive across industries, geographies and functions, it is imperative that fundamental Computational Thinking and Problem Solving skills become a part of the early education curriculum. The School Technology Education Program is the institute's first step in this direction.

Whether the student has already chosen a career in Information & Communication Technologies, or wants to augment the current understanding of Computational Thinking and Problem Solving skills, or is just curious to discover the inner workings of connected devices, these courses offer a well-rounded first look.
