Thiruvananthapuram: Nearly 1.50 lakh students in Kerala are set to be equipped with animation skills in December through a state-run programme that has helped to break the barrier in IT education in schools.
In May, the IT@School project had trained 1,586 selected students in animation skills with the help of whom 12,535 others were trained during Onam vacation in August.
A statement said a minimum of 50 students each from a school would attend the mass training programme in December through IT Clubs in the institutions.
Project chief K. Anvar Sadath said the innovative training session would take the students through a virtual tour on the animation movie making process.
"We have already submitted the documents to Guinness World Records for terming the training given to 12,535 students during the Onam vacation as the world's largest in its kind," Sadath said.
