The Government of India has set up the Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) at NITI Aayog, realizing the need to create scientific temper and cultivate a spirit of curiosity and innovation among young minds. AIM proposes to support the establishment of a network of Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATL) in India. It is a lab with various electronics, mechanical, design tools, and equipment. The vision of ATL is to ‘Cultivate 1 Million children in India as Neoteric Innovators’.
NITI Aayog grants some funds to the school to build infrastructure, to buy suggested equipment and tools. With the help of the funds, the school can buy the equipment suggested by the NITI Aayog. Now schools can invite students to make creative projects for various competitions or to make their own creative prototype.
Schools who have the following conditions:
NITI Aayog shall provide financial support in the form of grant-in-aid of Rs. 20 Lakh. One time establishment charge of up to Rs. 10.00 lakh would be provided for each ATL in the first year for instruments, prototyping equipment like do-it-yourself kits, 3D printer, electronic tools, etc.
An amount of Rs. 10.00 lakh would be provided for each ATL over a maximum period of 5 years for the operation of ATLs, maintenance of equipment, purchase of consumables, organizing popular science lecture series, innovation events and other scientific activities, competitions and payment of honorariums to the faculty and mentors involved.
Applicant schools intending to establish ATLs may visit http://www.niti.gov.in and submit their application online to the Atal Innovation Mission, NITI Aayog.
Once the school gets the grant they can start with the preparation of the room coloring, light fitting, internet connection, and other infrastructure. Meanwhile, the school can select a vendor to purchase suggested equipment and tools. Once school is done with purchasing it is the time to train the teachers from the school for ATL.
Initially, the school should provide an opportunity for all the students to visit the lab and ask the students to perform some activities. After that, the school can select interested students for regular learning sessions. Open ATL for all the new ideas of the students.
