Atal Tinkering Laboratory

Day & DateWednesday, 13th March 2019

With a vision to ‘Cultivate one Million children in India as Neoteric Innovators’, Atal Innovation Mission has established Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATLs) in schools across India.

Cambridge School NOIDA has been granted the opportunity to be a part of this initiative by the Government of India recently.

Keeping in view the objective of this scheme- to foster curiosity, creativity and imagination in students; and inculcate skills such as design mindset, computational thinking, adaptive learning, and physical computing etc. the science teachers of CSN have mentored the students from classes VI to XI and have encouraged them to perform many innovative activities since December 2018.

The projects and activities on diverse concepts of science were showcased on 13th March 2019 in the ATL in the school.

The students not only performed the activities thereby exhibiting an understanding of the concepts but also prepared a detailed report of the same.

This has given an opportunity to the students to go beyond their textbooks and explore the fascinating world of science.

This initiative will be carried forward in the new session too with great enthusiasm as this platform has inspired and motivated the young minds of Cambridge School, NOIDA.

  
  

 

Robotics classes for students of VI-VIII are being held in the Atal Tinkering Laboratory in the Senior Wing of Cambridge School Noida. The classes began in the month of November 2018 and will continue till February 2019.

The students have learned about the concepts of friction, speed, acceleration and have applied their knowledge effectively in making innovative robots like vertical soccer, bull-dozer robot, gripper robot, high torque crane etc and have also done group activity to design an amusement park ride.
