Speaking to ‘Telangana Today’, the association district general secretary Kokkula Sampat Kumar said that they had trained 60 students for eight days in August this year under the HOT online by inviting experts from various reputed institutions from India and abroad. “While 60 children attended the classes, 12 of them excelled with prototypes. They have identified solutions from a few problems with their prototypes,” said Sampat Kumar, who is playing a vital role in executing several such projects.
Thus the ELTA has made the best use of even the worst situation emerging out of the COVID-19 outbreak to enrich the students of government schools both in language and technology.

A total of 40 students attended the online class in 2020,” he said.
“We have conducted Spellathon with VK Educational Solutions, Story Telling Competition with Vandemataram Foundation, Advanced Spoken English course covering grammar topics which would help the students in their academics, ‘Phonetics’ and a lot about ICT tools during these courses,” Sampat said, adding that they were also coming up ‘Techy kid’s Newsletter’ to reflect on the problems, famous personalities, issues, and different contemporary topics to help the students in improving their thinking skills.
