Students should have tinkering attitude: Dr. Arvind Sinha
Jamshedpur: Kerala Public School (KPS) Kadma got its own Atal Tinkering Lab. The lab witnessed first few tinkering models made by the students during the exhibition.
The exhibition was inaugurated by Dr. Arvind Sinha, Chairman, Jharkhand State Chapter, National Academy of Sciences. The dignitaries present were Director KPS Sharat Chandran, Assistant Director Shanta Vaidhyanathan, Academic Director Lakshmi Sharat, Principal Sharmila Mukherjee, Headmistress K. Jaishree and others.
The chief guest motivated the students with his inspirational words. He shared his views on Tinkering minds and asked students to think beyond the box. ‘India needs these young minds to innovate and find solutions to existing problems.
The students should have a tinkering attitude rather than being a Science stream student. Tinkering is about hands-on experiences, learning from failures, and unstructured time to explore and invent’, added Dr. Sinha.
Principal Sharmila Mukherjee informed that the lab activities are designed to spur the spark of creativity, and go beyond regular curriculum and text book learning. The lab will let students explore skills of future such as design and computational thinking, adaptive learning and artificial intelligence.
This will enable to create a problem solving, innovative mind set within students. Atal Tinkering Lab will bring India a step closer to the mission of creating One Million Neoteric Child Innovators in India by 2020.
