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) in India. ATL is a work space where young minds
can give shape to their ideas through hands on do-it-yourself mode and learn / develop innovation skills. The vision is to ‘Cultivate 1 Million children in India as Neoteric1
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, rapid calculations, measurements 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).
