Guidelines for setting up of Tinkering Laboratories under Atal Innovation Mission – ‘Atal Tinkering Laboratories’

Government of India NITI AAYOG Atal Innovation Mission GUIDELINES FOR SETTING UP OF ATAL TINKERING LABORATORIES (ATL)

 

Background

The Government of India has setup the Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) at NITI Aayog. Realising the need to create scientific temper and cultivate the spirit of curiosity and innovation among young minds, AIM proposes to support establishment of a network of Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATL). ATL is a work space where young minds can give shape to their ideas through hands on do-it-yourself mode and learn innovation skills. The vision is to ‘Cultivate 1 Million children in India as Neoteric1 Innovators’.

 

Objectives

The objective of this scheme is to foster curiosity, creativity and imagination in young minds and inculcate skills such as design mind-set, computational thinking, adaptive learning, physical computing etc. Young children will get a chance to work with tools and equipment to understand what, how and why aspects of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math).

 

Features of Scheme

1. ATLs can be established in schools (minimum Grade VI – X) managed by Government, local body or private trusts/society.

2. Minimum 25% of the ATLs would be set up in schools managed by Government (Central / States)

 

Funding Support

  1. The applicant schools would be provided financial support in the form of Grant-in-aid for a maximum period of 5 years.

  2. Key aspects of funding ATLs in schools:
    a) One time establishment charge of up to Rs. 10.0 lakh would be provided for each ATL in the first year for instruments, equipment like do-it-yourself kits, 3D printer, etc. An illustrative list of equipment and kits is at Annex IV. A checklist of mandatory equipment and other infrastructure would be communicated to selected schools. The schools will procure equipment and kits at their end, however the AIM will fix their rates. 1 Neoteric means a person who advocates new ideas .
    b) An amount of Rs. 10.0 lakh would be provided for each ATL over a maximum period of 5 years for operation of ATLs, maintenance of equipment, purchase of consumables, organising popular science lecture series and other scientific activities, competitions and payment of honorariums to the faculty and mentors involved.

  3. Contributions from philanthropic and other institutions and under Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) would be encouraged for financing / upgrading ATLs. Local Industry / Institution will be encouraged to support the initiative by creating subject/domain specific exhibits/tinkering laboratory facilities.

 

Infrastructure

The applicant school would have to provide at least 1,500 sq. ft. of built up space. Applicant schools from hilly and island states would have to provide atleast 1,000 sq. ft. of built up space. The existing facilities for meeting rooms and video conferencing among others can be used to supplement the laboratory space.

 

The program of establishment of ATLs across the country would be handled by a National Coordinator (NC) in AIM Directorate.

 

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. The prescribed application formats are at Annex III. Necessary documents can also be uploaded online.

 

The applications would be evaluated based on Selection Criteria (Annex II).

 

Short listed schools will be invited to participate in an Innovation Contest which will be informed by AIM. Each school will form groups of maximum 3 students and send one entry for the contest. The entries will be judged on the basis of following parameters:
a. Novelty of innovation in identified areas
b. Clarity of expression
c. Demonstration
d. Potential impact

 

Teams of top 3 entries will be given an opportunity to participate in Intel Science and Engineering Fair.

 

Selected Schools will be required to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) (Annex V) and Bond (Annex VI) with AIM Directorate.
