“What good is an idea if it remains an idea? Try. Experiment. Iterate. Fail. Try again. Change the world.” – Simon Sinek
Atal Tinkering Lab (ATL) aims to create a pool of talent that is future ready, by introducing and exposing students to essential world skills; to get them to think out of the box, and break boundaries and make something unique in the process. The lab helps to instil a ‘maker’ spirit in young people, by using hands-on experimentation, collaboration with the latest technology, and designing it to provide the much-needed solutions.
The ATL of SAI International School provides training to students from Class VI to IX on different kinds of Mechanical and Electrical tools, their uses and handling, Robotics, 3D printing, Internet of Things (IOT), Design thinking, Prototyping and Programming.
The lab is well-equipped with different tools, Electronic items, Sensors, 3D pen, 3D printers, IOT devices and high-end computers. Students get an opportunity to have a hand full of practical experiences about the concerned subjects and can implement their thoughts and ideas into a project.
The state of the art facilities and active mentoring by experts help the students to come up with various innovative projects. Students have also started demonstrating their projects in various competitions and won prizes. To take the innovation journey of the school to the next level, the school plans to upgrade the Lab with more tools, equipment and facilities.
These lab is a brilliant way to bring the do-it-yourself culture to the forefront, encourage and motivate students to become solution providers and get engaged in self-learning that will not only lead to the development of higher order thinking skills, but may eventually lead to discoveries, innovations and inventions.
