ATL @ Millennium, Pune
What is an ATL?
Atal Tinkering Labs (ATLs) are designated 1500 sqft. spaces, with state-of-the-art facilities, set aside for creating something new, a space for innovating and providing solutions for problems faced by individuals and communities.
One of the larger aims of the ATLs is to create a pool of talent that is future ready, by introducing and exposing young innovators to essential world skills; to get them to think out of the box, and break boundaries—and make something unique in the process!
On a broader canvas, the objective is to help instil a ‘maker’ spirit in young people, by providing opportunities for working outside the classroom, using hands-on experimentation and collaboration with the latest technology, and designing it to provide much needed solutions.
The program aims to bring the do-it-yourself culture to the forefront, encourage and motivate students to become solution providers and get engaged in self-learning that will not only lead to the development of higher order thinking skills, but may eventually lead to discoveries, innovations and inventions.

The Tinkering Lab at MILLENNIUM will seek to impart education as a form of empowerment, such that learners go from the consciousness of the real to the consciousness of the possible as they perceive the viable new alternatives beyond limiting situations through projects deeply connected at a personal or community level.

Curiosity and Wonder - Does Nature inspire you?
We live in a world of unseeable beauty, so subtle and delicate that it is imperceptible to the human eye. Become explorers in our own backyards. Who knows what waits to be seen and what wonders will transform our lives
Will you ever build something useful?
Simone Giertz shares her craft: making useless robots. Her inventions -- designed to chop vegetables, cut hair, apply lipstick and more -- rarely (if ever) succeed, and that's the point. "The true beauty of making useless things is this acknowledgment that you don't always know what the best answer is"
