With a vision to cultivate one million child innovators in India, Atal Innovation Mission by NITI Aayog and Government of India, envisaged a novel program – establishment of Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATLs) in schools across the country. The Government of India aims to create an eco-system in the country that promotes the development and use of technology to find feasible solutions to problems
The objective of this program is to foster curiosity, creativity and imagination in young minds; and to inculcate skills such as design mind set, computational thinking, adaptive learning, physical computing etc. This is in sync with the global scenario where Future Work Skills are increasingly being considered as an important skill set for creating new avenues, providing solutions to global problems.
Modern School has been selected to be a part of the Atal Tinkering Lab (ATL) community and will be actively contributing to fulfill the mission to ‘Transform India into an Innovative Nation’ from the session 2022-23 onwards. As per the guidelines set by them, our school has a dedicated lab, faculty members to channelize the curiosity of the children in the right direction by providing an enabling environment for students to innovate through a do-it-yourself approach.
