The Covid-19 pandemic has of course made it to the golden era for India’s ed-tech companies. AIM has launched the Atal Tinkering Lab (ATL) programme where space is established in schools to foster curiosity and innovation in students. The coronavirus pandemic has literally changed and sparked the world’s largest-ever remote learning experiment.

Covid-19 has made the education system suffer a lot. It has made the system entirely digitized in this era. Not to forget, there is a need for practical learning as well keeping in mind how digital education can impact a kid’s mind and health. Other than setting up Atal Tinkering Lab in schools, Ed-tech companies are also providing various services to students and developing them into ‘kidpreneurs’.

With the help of abundant services, students can innovate and experiment with the help of 21st-century tools and technologies such as Coding, Python, IoT, 3D printing, AI, Robotics, do-it-yourself kits, and many more which stimulate problem-solving innovative mindsets within them.
