Atal Innovation Mission is establishing Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATLs) in eminent schools across India. With the objective of to foster curiosity, creativity, and imagination in young minds; and inculcate skills such as design mindset, computational thinking, adaptive learning, physical computing etc. we created an ATL lab in our in 2020 in association with NITI Aayog .
ATL is a workspace where we nurture young minds giving shape to their ideas through hands on do-it-yourself mode and learning innovative skills to foster inventiveness among students. We participate in different activities ranging from regional and national level competitions, exhibitions, workshops on problem solving, designing and fabrication of products, lecture series etc. at periodic intervals conducted by ATL.
