The ITA IT Kids Innovation Theatre will take place in the cities of Muscat and Salalah.

The Information Technology Authority (ITA) of Oman is holding the third edition of its IT Kids Innovation Theatre, a programme to develop children's information technology (IT) skills.

The summer camp will run in July and August in Muscat and Salalah. The program is organised in collaboration with Middle East College, OmanLNG and private sector organisations including Cisco, Innotech and Engineering for Kids.

The program aims at developing children's knowledge and abilities in IT, encouraging them to utilise their IT knowledge and imagination to produce creative services and products, and qualifying and empowering them to be IT entrepreneurs in the future.

The programme targets kids between 9-12 years old who are familiar with some basic skills in IT such as using computers, running programs and some basic applications. This year, the program focuses on two main areas: Programming and Robotics. The programme includes a set of activities such as workshops, project planning, preparation and implementation, and personal skills enhancement. The programme is an opportunity for the kids to spend their free time during summer vacation. It also contributes in promoting the kids' skills in technology and raising their knowledge in IT.

The program will be held at the Middle East College in Muscat from July 29 to August 16. It will be held in Salalah at the Public Authority for Civil Aviation from July 29 to August 9.
