Early Times Report

JAMMU, May 27: The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Jammu organized a two-day workshop on "Effective use of ATLs for STEM" for the teaching staff of Sainik School Nagrota. The workshop, held on May 27th-28th, 2023, aimed to equip school teachers with the necessary skills to effectively utilize the Atal Tinkering Lab (ATL) already established at Sainik School Nagrota.
The Atal Innovation Mission, with the vision of "Cultivating one Million children in India as Neoteric Innovators," has introduced Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATLs) in schools nationwide. This initiative seeks to foster curiosity, creativity, and imagination in young minds, nurturing skills such as design mindset, computational thinking, adaptive learning, and physical computing.
Dr. Vijay Kumar Pal, Assistant Professor in the Mechanical Engineering Department at IIT Jammu and coordinator of the workshop, emphasized the significance of experiential and project-based learning in school education and its role in national development.
He highlighted that the National Education Policy (NEP-2020) implemented by the Government of India places great importance on experiential and project-based learning. Dr. Pal added, "The training of school teachers is crucial in this transitional period, enabling them to pass on their experiential knowledge to young students and ignite their creative minds for product development."
The workshop featured a distinguished panel of experts, including Deepesh Patidar, Shivani, Shubham, and Vishal, who enlightened the participants on the concept of Ardino and demonstrated how to create captivating and innovative experiments for classroom teaching. Additionally, the teachers had the opportunity to visit the Institute Innovation and Entrepreneurship Development Centre (I2EDC) lab at IIT Jammu, gaining insights into the effective utilization of machines for tinkering purposes, which plays a crucial role in the advancement of STEM education.
Sainik Schools, known for preparing cadets academically, mentally, and physically to join the Armed Forces as Officers, contribute significantly to nation-building. Sainik School Nagrota has successfully established an ATL lab within their school.
Overall, the workshop aligns with the vision of NEP-2020, focusing on experiential and project-based learning to stimulate critical thinking and skill development in students.
