Atal Tinkering Lab

Human history is invention—to help understand and improve our world! The students can dive deep into the world of robotics and explore how computer programming and robot design can solve problems big and small! The students were given a challenge to build their own robot, with no restrictions attached!

In this era of technology, rapid developments are being made everyday especially in the field of electronics, where automation of dangerous tasks is the top priority.

This is how ATL (ATAL TINKERING LAB), a version of scientific innovation from young minds, finds a mark on NHPS.

Our students rose to the occasion in translating their creative and innovative skills in science and technology.  They utilized the facilities provided by the school and came up with successful projects which would benefit mankind and our country in particular.

Recently our students were involved in making small drones on their own, in the ATL with the latest electronic gadgets (funded by the Government of India) to detect and suffice our day to day requirements such as detecting hazardous gases, saving water resources at dams and applying the ideas of SWACHH BHARATH even to the remotest spots in India.

The live demo given by our students fascinated the entire school community and it will inspire others too!

NHPS wishes them Good Luck for all their future endeavours.

Redesigning App

Imagine waking up one day and you forget how to use your smart-phone, how will you feel about it. Will you be struggling to navigate around? Will it be easy to find what you are looking for?

Well it will be painfully irritating to navigate around. Usability is not just limited smart-phones and the apps installed in that smart-phone. User Experience or UX is applied in every day to day things that you use! UX basically deals with solving problems and making a product more efficient.

For this challenge you will have to redesign any one of the below mentioned apps:

  1. Whatsapp
  2. Instagram
  3. Swiggy/Zomato
  4. Splitwise
  5. Google Chrome

The redesigning is just changing UI or User interface of the appyou will have to do 4 things,

  • Do a survey using Google form and find the issues faced by the users, navigationwise and usabilitywise.
  • Find out the major issues and keeping them in mind redesign the app. First sketch it on paper then prototype it on Figma.
  • Publish your findings and screenshot of your prototype in Medium.
  • Share your prototype and link to Medium post to 
    atlnhps@newhorizonindia.edu 
    (prototype should be interactive).


Rube Goldberg Machine

We as humans are habitual of making something really simple to something as complex as a jalebi. Well this challenge is something of that sorts. You will have to do a simple task in a complex way.

  • Turn page of newspaper
  • Switch ON/OFF light
  • Cut a cake

The working of machine should be recorded and sent to atlnhps@newhorizonindia.edu

The working video should be single shot with a fun commentary. There should not be any editing if any editing found entry will be disqualified.

Admission Enquiry Form

    Respected Madam,

    I am writing this e-mail with immense happiness and gratitude. To see Niharica improve slowly and steadily has given me a lot of confidence that she will do well in her academics even in her higher classes. She now reads very well and independently. She also remembers things better. Her writing has improved as well.

    I would like to thank you mam for your patience, understanding and encouragement. I would also thank the school management for having such a set up where the kids can be given special attention to improve in the areas that they are weak in.

    Mam, I am sure that with your guidance Niharica will have a wholesome growth. Thank you once again.

    Yours sincerely,
    Malathy
