We join the ATL national network
December 2 proved to be a red letter day for Navrachana Vidyani when it was the ONLY school from Vadodara to be selected to the Government of India's proposed national network of Atal Tinkering Laboratories (ATL)!

Tinkering Laboratory is an American concept which will enhance the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) Programme of the School and helps fosters curiosity, creativity and imagination in young minds. The ATL programme thus seeks to create a scientific temper, inculcate technical skill-sets and cultivate the spirit of curiosity in young minds. As a participating institution, the School will receive Government support in setting up work spaces where students can give shape to their ideas through hands-on activities and learn innovation.

The selection was a rigorous multi-stage process wherein applications were screened to short list 595 schools that had then to participate in an Innovation Contest. Our school was represented by Principal Sonal Verma, Teacher Deepika Singh and 3 students of Class XI Science, Kalp Shah, Purva Parmar and Sumedh Kulkarni. The entries were judged on the basis of the Novelty of Innovation in the identified areas, Clarity of Expression and Demonstration and Potential Impact of the project. A singular component of the Navrachana Vidyani entry was Kalp, Purva and Sumedh building a robot that could segregate bio-degradable and non-biodegradable waste.

The vision of the Atal Innovation Mission at NITI Aayog is to 'Cultivate 1 Million children in India as Neoteric (modernistic) Innovators' and we are extremely proud to be a part of this mission!
