The Government of India had started the Atal Tinkering Lab (ATL) initiative in order to develop the interest amongst the students and help them flourish. Under the scheme by the Central government, country’s first ATL was started at Mumbai’s Vivekanand Education Society’s Vivekanand English School situated at Kurla. 

The first-of-its-kind lab was inaugurated by Vinod Kamble, Minister of State for Social Justice and Special Assistance on August 3.


After the inauguration, the students made devices similar to Smoke Sensor, 3-D Printer, Soldering Station, Aqua Alarm, 360 Degree Safety, Secure Smart. For the creation of these devices, the students were assisted by the teachers. Since the ATL in Kurla’s Vivekanand School is the first lab in Mumbai, the NITI Aayog (National Institution of Transforming India) will provide a fund of ₹20 lakh to the school.
