'Tasks' are meant for students, dont worry!


Why this Training NOW ?

  • 1 month to go - we got limited time
  • Participation of Kerala students very low
  • Students deprived of opportunity 
  • INDIA need better Computer Engineers who know to code 
  • Would be a huge addition to school records

Why this Training NOW ?

Performance of students outside India is incomparable





Is it already Happening ?


why not 


What is happening in schools now ?

  • Undirected student clubs
  • Excess priority given to arts and games ( not the situation with Amritavidyalayam ) 
  • Difficult to handle a club, without affecting the student academics
