ATAL TINKERING LAB : THE KEY TO INDIA'S BRIGHTER FUTURe

OBJECTIVE OF ATL:

The objective of this scheme is to foster curiosity, creativity, and imagination in young minds and inculcate skills such as design mindset, computational thinking, adaptive learning, physical computing etc. Young children will get a chance to work with tools and equipment to understand what, how and why aspects of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) The objective of this scheme is to foster curiosity, creativity, and imagination in young minds and inculcate skills such as design mindset, computational thinking, adaptive learning, physical computing etc. Young children will get a chance to work with tools and equipment to understand what, how and why aspects of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math)

ATL would contain educational and learn “do it yourself” kits and equipment on – science, electronics, robotics, open source microcontroller boards, sensors and 3D printers etc.

BACKGROUND:

The Government of India has setup the Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) at NITI Aayog. Realizing the need to create scientific temper and cultivate the spirit of curiosity and innovation among young minds, AIM proposes to support the establishment of a network of Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATL). ATL is a workspace where young minds can give shape to their ideas through hands-on do-it-yourself mode and learn innovation skills. The vision is to cultivate 1 Million children in India as Neoteric Innovators. The Government of India has setup the Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) at NITI Aayog.

MORE ABOUT ATL...

ATL is an approach of Central government of India to create an environment of scientific temperament, innovation, creativity amongst Indian Students. It is a step towards a new India.

Since the last few decades, our education system has seen a paradigm shift. Today, with this approach of inculcating Hands on Methodology in the current education scenario we have resolved the need of the hour.

ATL lab would teach students essential 21st-century skills which will help them in developing their professional and personal skills. Skilled India is the need of the hour and each step taken this dream should be welcomed and we should work towards it together for a better India.

Why the Schools need Tinkering Labs?

STEM  is a group of subjects comprising of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. In many cases, it gets quite monotonous to teach these subjects inside the classroom only with the help of textbooks. These subjects, because of their very structure, are complex and may also appear convoluted. 

  • The theories, principles, properties, theorems and various tenets presented by STEM may seem convoluted for many students. So, the general take an easy way and simply mug up these things during examination time.

  • No wonder many of the high-grade students are unable to remember even the basic STEM texts and reference they read in lower grades

  • Because of the above 3 points, the foundation of STEM is quite weak in many students and over a while, they are detached from the subject (s) due to limited loyalty

  • One of the major challenges posed by traditional classroom learning (through textbooks) is that even the students that can join the relevant fields of engineering, science or mathematics are limited to professional requirements of the job rather than developing an innovative approach

  • The lack of innovative approach in STEM subjects limits the candidates from taking full advantage of their potential

WHILE WORKING WITH RELEVANT TOOLS AND HELPFUL AMBIENCE, THE STUDENTS CAN: 

  • Learn the complex aspects of STEM subjects in a more direct and human way

  • Engaging multiple senses for practically experiencing the concepts of STEM subjects help the students to retain the different aspects of the topics

  • Do-It-yourself ambience helps the students to develop a natural inclination towards “innovating” rather than sticking to the limitations of learned words

  • The very structure of Atal Tinkering labs allows the students to perfectly blend the left (logical) and right (creative) brain. It helps the students to develop a natural “liking” towards their subjects
