What is an Atal Tinkering Lab?

ATL or “Atal Tinkering Labs” is an initiative by the Niti Aayog to give a boost to the innovation ecosystem in the country. Our offering for a Tinkering Lab focuses on creating an environment that promotes the participants to dream, the equipment which allows them to tinker, the curriculum that enables them to structure their thinking and a challenging environment that enables young innovators to test themselves.

Avishkaar also organizes an international level competition, Avishkaar Makeathon where students of our ATL labs get an opportunity to participate. We offer our own equipment and solutions to set up the Atal Tinkering Labs as envisioned by NITI Aayog.

07 Can I visit any school where the lab is set up by Avishkaar?
Yes, of course. We can arrange a visit after taking permission from school authorities.
08 How an ATL lab can be run in school?
First off, ATL labs are promoted by the Government as a different path of learning thus, following a syllabus is not recommended. However, we understand it may prove to be difficult to run a lab without any kind of structure in place. Therefore, our experts at Avishkaar, who have amassed experience of working in ATLs, devised a curriculum. This will make it easier for the schools to run their labs and also serve the intended purpose of ATL by making it a part of the school’s structure.
