IIIT Director G. Kannabiran inaugurating the summer camp on the campus in Chittoor district on Wednesday.  

A three-day summer camp of Future Bright Innovators (FBI) for intermediate students began at the Indian Institute of Information Technology (IIIT Sri City) on Wednesday.

The initiative, taken up in association with the Sri City Private Limited, aims to target students, from Chennai, Bengaluru, Tirupati and Nellore, to enhance their understanding in computing and applications. It will give them experience in the fields and is likely to help them pick subjects of their choice later.
