NCPCR to survey Schools funded for Atal Tinkering Lab

The National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) will be carrying out a survey of the 2,200 schools that were provided with funding by Niti Aayog to set up the Atal Tinkering Labs. The step was taken to promote research in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) among students across the nation.

NCPCR is also expected to suggest ways for ensuring that children from marginalised communities in the vicinity of every school can be given access to such labs. NITI Aayog signed a statement of intent with NCPCR regarding the same.

“Since these labs have received direct funding from the Central government to advance innovation and creativity among children, we have to ensure that the resources reach all sections, especially children from marginalised communities from nearby settlements and schools. About 2,200 such labs are already running while another 6,000 will roll off soon,” said Priyank Kanoongo, Chairperson, NCPCR.
