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 ATLs 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.
Atal Tinkering Lab Eligibility Criteria for Schools: Infrastructure
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.

Introduction to Atal Tinkering Laboratories
In simple words, Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATL) is an initiative proposed by the Govt. of India under the AIM (Atal Innovation Mission) by NITI Aayog. The main objective of ATL is to cultivate 1 million students studying in schools across India as Neoteric Innovators. Atal Tinkering Lab is a workplace that consists of modern 21st-century innovative technologies that will help the students to learn and solve the local issues with the help of their creative thinking abilities which they develop by gaining the knowledge from using such technologies.
The other types of schemes that come under AIM are
ATL provides the students with a perfect learning environment that gives them a chance to experiment with the tools and types of equipment to grasp the concept of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education system which builds up cognitive thinking and encourages students to apply STEM learning concepts to decode real-life problems using real-life scenarios.
The students will get a chance to engage with the “do it yourself” activities that will help to build a habit of learning by experimenting. In order to meet the technological advancement in education, it is vital for all the schools to set up a complete Atal tinkering lab at their premises.
ATL targets the students of Class VI to XII and helps to nurture, investigative, problem-solving and scientific skills and bring out the true potential of students. The schools which are equipped with ATL are not only limited to teaching students the school curriculum but also make them aware of the latest technology trends.
The Atal Tinkering Lab powered by Tinkerly consists of 180+ tools such as Do-it-yourself kits, Robotics, 3D Printer mechanical & electrical equipment and consumables in accordance with the guidelines of NITI Aayog.
Tinkerly provides a set of four packages for schools that are created as per the guidelines of NITI aayog.
What are the benefits of the Atal Tinker Lab?
The goal of setting up ATLs in school premises provides a wonderful opportunity for kids to learn innovative things by using the practical approach rather than learning from only the textbook as a reference point.
How does an ATL lab work?
NITI Aayog grants some funds to the schools in order to help the school build proper infrastructure and to buy the necessary tools and equipment.
