Atal Tinkering Lab is envisaged to be a playground to play and learn science beyond school text books, through application based self-learning, to foster solutions to community problems. The vision is to create neoteric innovators in India who will create jobs of tomorrow and lead impact at scale.
Establishment of Atal Tinkering Labs (ATLs) in School in association with the Atal Innovation Mission and NITI Ayog (Government of India) aims for children to work with tools and equipment to understand the concepts of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math). We look forward to it being instrumental in shaping the innovative prowess of the students of our school and to tinker to bring about a positive change in the not too distant future.
We look forward to the success of this initiative and to prove that the hands-on experience and ‘Do It Yourself’ approach of the ATL will motivate our young generation to carve a brighter future for themselves and for India.
With ATL, we dream to create a new breed of Young Student Innovators in India, with the ‘I can do differently’ attitude and mindset.
To enhance awareness about environmental issues and to give knowledge about variations amongst the living, Biology Lab stresses upon the connection of Biology to real life problems and also lays emphasis on the use of biological discoveries / innovation in every day life. Various experiments like dissection of flowers, collection of study soil are undertaken under the strict surveillance of the expert teachers. The learners are given exposure to various branches of biology in a contextual and friendly manner. They are also encouraged to develop rational attitude to issues related to population, environment and development.
To promote understanding of basic facts & concepts while retaining the excitement level of the subject is the main objective of Chemistry Lab. The students are exposed to various emerging areas of chemistry and are also apprised with its relevance in their future studies. The basic laboratory techniques like cutting of glass tube or glass rod, bending a glass tube, boring a cork are taught to students by expert teachers. Preparation of Inorganic compounds and organic compounds are taught through various experiments in Lab. Greater emphasis is laid on use of new nomenclature, symbols and formulations, teaching of fundamental concepts, application of concepts in chemistry to industry / technology thus rising the scientific and technological level of students.
M.M.P.S. understands the virtual necessity and sizeable benefits of computerization. Thus, there are large and well equipped computer labs for junior and senior level in the school. Apart from IT-Education computers also serve as teaching aids for other subjects also. Through convenient computer packages certain difficult topics are easily taught to the students.
To enhance the capabilities in engineering, drafting and architectural designing the subject Engineering Graphics has been given a great significance in the school. The understanding of its fundamental principles and its wider application are not only incorporated among the students but are also trained to draw real sketches often needed in "on job situations". The students are tutored by expert teachers to develop a clear understanding of plan, solid geometry and machine drawing so as to apply the same in relevant practical fields. The students acquire speed and accuracy with the use of drawing instruments in a friendly atmosphere. The real emphasis is laid upon the development of skills of expressing three dimensional and two dimensional objects into professional language and vice versa in Engineering Graphics Lab.
To make young MMPIANS expert in household chores various activities like Cooking, Stitching, Home Decoration etc. are taught by expert facilitators in a well equipped Home Science Lab. This lab with necessary facilities aims at making a well balanced MMPIAN.
"Learning with joy" is the main motto of Mathematics Lab. Difficult concepts in an easier way are taught in this lab. 2D and 3D shapes are used to demonstrate different activities. Geo Board, different author's lab manuals help the facilitator to explain different and difficult concepts with ease.
The school keeping in view the rigor and depth of disciplinary approach as well as comprehensive level promote problem solving abilities and creative thinking in learners in Physics Lab. The real emphasis in lab is laid on strengthening the concepts through various equipment like Potentiometer, Meter bridge, Junction Diode apparatus etc. Many activities & experiments like finding the frequency of a.c. mains with a sonometer, converting the given galvanometer into an ammeter and voltmeter of desired range is taught in a friendly manner to the students in Physics Lab.
The knowledge of global world is enriched through physical and political maps of India, World and different Continents in well maintained Social Science Lab. Not only instruments like Barometer to test humidity of the weather and Rain gauge to test the density of rain but also working models on rain water harvesting etc aid in the growth of the mental level of students. Impressive still models on different monuments provide the basic education of our cultural heritage to the young minds.
