Atal Innovation Mission (AIM) – NITI Aayog launched ATL SARATHI, a comprehensive self-monitoring framework to strengthen the growing ecosystem of Atal Tinkering Labs (ATL).
Atal Innovation Mission is establishing Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATLs) in schools across India to foster curiosity, creativity, and imagination in young minds; and inculcate skills such as design thinking mindset, computational thinking, adaptive learning, physical computing etc.
So far AIM has provided financial assistance to 10,000 schools to set up Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATLs).
The objective of ATL Cluster is to provide a self-sustainable model for ATLs and local authorities to work closely with each other and monitor, to form clusters of 20-30 ATLs in a particular area.
These ATLs can learn from each other through training, collaboration, events and best practices. As a pilot, AIM implemented ATL Sarathi with various partners in regions like Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat.
